|The Ural River Sturgeons: Population Dynamics, Catch, Reasons for Decline and Restoration Strategies||
Abstract: The Ural river, the third longest river in Europe, has the only remaining spawning habitats in the entire Caspian basin for all sturgeon species. Unlike other large European rivers the river’s ecosystem has not been altered and the natural hydrological regime is still intact. The Ural sturgeon yield-to-fishery relative to river discharge was the highest in the Caspian Sea till recently. The environmental conditions to secure natural reproduction are still satisfactory for successful sturgeon reproduction. However, nowadays the catch in all regional sturgeon species is negligible.
