ABSTRACT

This study was carried out to determine biometric, morphometric, and genetic features of two sterlet populations. The morphometric and biometric analyses were performed to determine the degree of plasticity of individual characters and the range of variability which in the sterlet require further analysis. The purpose of the genetic analysis was to characterise the gene coding sequence for the first subunit of cytochrome oxidase I (COI) in terms of its nucleotide variability within and between populations. This study provided a comprehensive characterisation of the two sterlet populations and defined the extent of their variability (eg.: distance between tip of barbell and cartilaginous arch of mouth, maximum width of head or number of dorsal plates) and homogeneity (eg.: horizontal eye diameter, length of barbell or preanal distance).

Key words: Acipenser ruthenus, sturgeon, biometric and genetic analyses, cytochrome oxidase I.
