Sturgeon and Sterlets need to be provided with quality protein-rich food for all year round.
Sturgeon is the common name for the 27 species of fish belonging to the family Acipenseridae. Their evolution dates back to the triassic period, some 245 to 208 million years ago. The family is grouped into four genera: acipenser, huso, scaphirhynchus and pseudoscaphirhynchus. Sturgeon are long-lived, late maturing fish. Sturgeons have an average lifespan of around 50 to 60 years.
Unlike other ornamental species, sturgeon are true carnivores meaning they cannot digest most plant-based products, and being bottom-feeders they need a suitable diet that reflects this requirement.
