Description Previous studies demonstrated that some fish and amphibian hybrid crosses that were inviable as diploids proved viable as triploids. It appeared that the extra set of chromosomes allowed the hybrid offspring to overcome genetic incompatibility. This study examined the potential for using this technique on oyster crosses between C. gigas and either C. rivularis or C. virginica.G/R interspecific crosses demonstrated a consistent gametic incompatibility, while some interspecific G/V crosses...
