The International Symposium on Sturgeons (ISS) is one of the most significant events that gathers experts from all over the world to catch up on the developments in conservation of sturgeon populations and to discuss old and new challenges that threat sturgeon stocks worldwide. The team of “LIFE for Danube Sturgeons” will not miss on the opportunity to meet with peers and colleagues in Vienna from 10th to 16th September 2017.

The 8th ISS is to focus on further improvement of the management of sturgeons along with their essential habitats, transferring the lessons to be learnt from sustainable conservation attempts to make the investment in conservation successful. The second stronghold of the conference will be the aquaculture sector as traditionally Europe has a large share in sturgeon farming and caviar production.
”LIFE for Danube Sturgeons” will be presented during the entire conference with a stand located in the Wilhelm Exner Haus (Wilhelm Exner Building) at Peter-Jordan-Strasse 82, 1180 Vienna, which is one of the main premises of BOKU (University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna). In addition, members of the team will talk about their experience of working with sturgeon advocates in the session ‘Human Impacts (23)’ that will be held on Thursday morning, starting at 9am.
