It was established that viability and fertility of sapphire (genotype ppaa) minks being born by silver-blue (ppAa) females were higher than those obtained from sapphire females. The ppaa young animals murrain obtained from ppAa females was shown to be considerably lower during the plague epizootic than that of ppAa, ppAA and ppaa (from Intrabreeding) genotypes. One can draw the conclusion of heightened total suitability of ppaa minks being born by ppAa females.
