Biology And Conservation Of The European Sturgeon Acipenser Sturio L, 1758. The Reunion of the European and Atlantic Sturgeons 
Desk-study on habitat quality for the European Sturgeon in the Dutch Rhine and southern North Sea
One of the most endangered fish species worldwide is the European sturgeon Acipenser sturio. The River Rhine was home to an important sturgeon population that went locally extinct in the first halfExpand
Current Occurrence of the Atlantic Sturgeon Acipenser oxyrinchus in Northern Spain: A New Prospect for Sturgeon Conservation in Western Europe
The present sympatric occurrence of A. sturio and A. oxyrinchus raises new challenges about key questions, such as the species selection for restoration program in European countries, and accurate monitoring is mandatory to obtain appropriate information for an assessment of the current occurrence of the species in southwestern Europe.

Parentage assignment in the critically endangered European sturgeon (Acipenser sturio) based on a novel microsatellite multiplex assay: a valuable resource for restocking, monitoring and conservation programs
This research provides an efficient and accurate method for the genetic monitoring of the restocking program, but also for others aspects of conservation, including genetic diversity evaluation, effective population size estimation, and inbreeding assessment. Expand
Molecular basis of the digestive functionality in developing Persian sturgeon (Acipenser persicus) larvae: additional clues for its phylogenetic status
Phylogenetic analysis of the deduced amino acids sequences from the studied genes demonstrated that this species has a close evolutionary distance to Holostei, coelacanths, and tetrapods, including amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. Expand
Research Tools to Investigate Movements, Migrations, and Life History of Sturgeons (Acipenseridae), with an Emphasis on Marine-Oriented Populations
A more complete picture of migration is available for North American sturgeon species, while European and Asian species, which are among the most endangered sturgeons, are less understood. Expand
Oxythermal window drastically constraints the survival and development of European sturgeon early life phases
The temperature optimum of early life phases of A. sturio was determined to be close to 20 °C, and consequences of climate change would depend of the phenological adaptation of the species for its spawning period. Expand
Tracking juvenile sturgeon in the wild: Miniature tag effects assessment in a laboratory study on Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser baerii)
The results suggest that loss rate of RFID microtags is acceptable when applied alone on juveniles of this species but the tagging procedure should be improved, and that under stress, swimming performance was influenced by tagging. Expand
The current threat level of fish in river network of individual sea-drainage areas in the Czech Republic
The most important reasons considered as the causes of the disappearance or reduction in the presence of some fishes are the water pollution, adjustments to water flow beds, the limitation of floods in alluvial areas, the permanent river basin fragmentation, and the spread of invasive species.

Wild food in an urban environment: freshwater fish consumption in the archaic town of Forcello (northern Italy)
ABSTRACT In northern Italy's Po Plain, Etruscan cities flourished during the Archaic period (c. 6th-4th centuries BC), thanks to an organized and dynamic commercial network that linked these centresExpand
Expression and phylogeny of candidate genes for sex differentiation in a primitive fish species, the Siberian sturgeon, Acipenser baerii
It is proposed that sturgeons undergoing male differentiation express high levels of Sertoli cell factors and of genes involved in the production and receptivity of androgens together with lh together with the exception of sox9. Expand
