Duo culture response of Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser baeri) and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) was evaluated in culture tank conditions. Triplicated culture groups were planned as: mono-culture sturgeon (M, n=10), duo-culture sturgeon (DM, n=10) and duo-culture trout (DA, n=10), and mono-culture trout (A, n=10). Examination of mono and duo culture of each species, showed neither sturgeon nor trout, was indicated any significance on specific growth rate (SGR) and condition factor (CF). As for final biomasses among groups, no significant differences were recorded (p<0.05).
