Triploids – the facts

In simple terms, a triploid fish is a fish that is sterile. Across the Tasmanian Salmonid Industry, triploids are used to bridge the harvest gap between year classes to ensure continuous supply to the market.

Triploidy occurs naturally in wild populations due to environmental changes (usually water temperature fluctuations).
