Abstract

The comparison of body height in Çoruh trout (Salmo coruhensis) and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) larvae under culture conditions is reported for the first time. In this study, the assessment of some biometric characteristics was aimed in S. coruhensis and O. mykiss larvae under the culture conditions. Length (mm), weight (mm) and body height (mm) of two species were measured after three months. Mean length, weight and body height of Salmo coruhensis and Oncorhynchus mykiss larvae were determined as 24.42±1.48 mm and 26.73±1.71; 0.08±0.01 g and 0.12±0.02 g; 3.23±0.44 mm and 3.82±0.43 mm, respectively. The body height in O. mykiss larvae was higher than S. coruhensis larvae under culture conditions.
