Acceptability and prerequisites for the successful introduction of sturgeon species

Abstract : This study aims to synthesise the documented examples of sturgeon introductions worldwide, to pinpoint the prerequisites for success. Introductions lation and re-introduction are of concern. Our analysis enables us to classify the prerequisites for successful introduction according to the following five criteria: (1) geography, (2) habitat, (3) species-specific, (4) restocking, and (5) management. Co-managing and monitoring programmes applied to the introduction of a small number of tagged juveniles into suitable habitats of a small water system of a single country are promising conditions for success. In any case, introductions are multidisciplinary actions, which need to be mobilised in a coordinated fashion to set up clear objectives and hypotheses and take all the measures needed to verify each step of the introduction programmes.
