Sturgeons are thought of “living fossils”, sharing many morphological and organic positive aspects with ancestral fish. moreover, sturgeons are of the maximum curiosity from an financial viewpoint, not just for the caviar yet for the flesh. notwithstanding, the wild populations of nearly all of the species are at severe possibility of extinction worldwide. So, it really is pressing to enhance thoughts for either farming tradition and conservation and restoration in ordinary habitats.

This publication offers a accomplished view of the biology and sustainable improvement of sturgeons placing emphasis at the Southern Europe autochthonous species equivalent to Acipenser nacarii and Acipenser sturio that proportion geographical distribution. different proper species (such as Huso huso, A. oxyrhinchus, A. ruthenus, A. stellatus) and components (Germany, Russia, North the US) also are thought of. The contents are organised in 3 sections: Taxonomy and Biogeography (including the morphological and genetic analyses that make clear the taxonomy and phylogeny of sturgeons, inquisitive about these from Southern Europe), Biology and Aquaculture (where a number of points of the developmental biology, feeding, and replica are thought of in terms of the advance of sturgeon farming), and restoration and Conservation (that collates and analyses diverse restoration study activities, the ecology of the rivers for recovery in addition to the issues concerning the exchange of caviar).
