RE: how do you call...

i guess my problem until you guys explained it clearly was that F1 for example meant to me that it was the first generation issued from a wild pair. i was wrong. it is just the first generation you got from a pair, period.
my question was really that i was wondering what you would call the cross between a wild caught fish and 1 of his own offspring. here again the answer is F1 for the reason you've explained.
thank you all for your input.
have a great day.

I am sorry if I am a slow learner but, let me see if I can understand or at least relate my understanding without the F's.
The question as I saw it was if you bred a Wild fish to a captive bred fish. What would it be as far as the F system is concerned?
  My logic would say you have a wild fish being bred for the first time to another fish regardless of whether or not the other fish is wild it would be the first generation of those fish being bred in captivity. Does that make any sense?
