It is known that all sturgeon species when crossed (both interspecific and intergeneric crossings) allow to produce viable offspring, whereupon breeding of various hybrids of Siberian sturgeon is of practical importance for commercial or caviar sturgeon farming in various climatic and technological conditions.

The current chapter provides a brief overview of the experimental and commercial works on the hybridization of sturgeon with Siberian sturgeon used as one of the parental species. The history and methods of breeding and rearing of the various interspecific and intergeneric hybrids of Siberian sturgeon (with Russian and Amur sturgeon, with Sakhalin and the Adriatic ones, with Beluga, Kaluga, and sterlet) are described. The main morphological, breeding and reproductive characteristics are also presented, and options for economic use of hybrids are considered.

Generalization of data from different studies allows to conclude that the Siberian sturgeon in terms of commercial features and morphometric characteristics has a “dominant phenotype,” while the hybrids of Siberian sturgeon occupy diverse intermediate positions relatively to the parental species or show similarities to the Siberian sturgeon.
