An article presents data on the difference of the morphometric pre-larval and biochemical parameters of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis). It was established that the mass of the one day brook trout is lower compared with to the mass of rainbow trout for 16 %, but the total length of fish is practically identical. Percentage weight of yolk sac, the content of total lipids and the levels of phospholipids and triacylglycerols in brook trout tissues were higher than in rainbow trout.
