The Danube Sturgeon Task Force (DSTF), founded in January 2012 in the frame of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region, Priority Area 6 (Biodiversity), aims to coordinate and foster the conservation of highly endangered native sturgeon species in the Danube River Basin and the Black Sea by promoting the implementation of the Program “STURGEON 2020”.
Considered a flagship species for the Danube River Basin and valuable indicators of water quality and ecosystem health, sturgeons are today on the brink of extinction due to the overexploitation, disruption of spawning migration and loss of habitats. Hence, urgent measures are needed to stop their dramatic decline and prevent their disappearance.
