#S09 Joint Baltic Sea Sturgeon Rehabilitation Development (Baltic Sturgeon Rehabilitation)

Priority Area Bio - Preserving natural zones and biodiversity, including fisheries

The main project is intended to provide the backbone for a harmonized rehabilitation of self-sustaining sturgeon populations in the Baltic range states and the sea. As such it is a pillar for the Natura 2000 and the Biodiversity strategy of the EU. It is putting into action the Baltic Sea Action Plan through a joint approach of Baltic range states. Beyond the release of juveniles obtained from captive broodstock, it actively attempts to increase compliance in the fishery sector through target group specific information campaigns and participatory models to integrate fishermen in the planned activities.
