The sturgeon – Ireland’s lost ‘dinosaur fish’ - should be reintroduced to Irish waters, say conservation groups
Government has been asked to study feasibility of reintroducing long-lost migratory fish that would benefit other species in Irish seas and rivers
The Government should consider reintroducing sturgeon, the long-lost “dinosaur fish” that once swam in Irish seas and rivers, conservation groups have said.
As part of an international campaign, the groups called on the Government to examine the feasibility of reintroducing the enigmatic fish that can grow to more than 2 metres long.
Sometimes called “dinosaur fish” as they have been swimming in rivers and seas since the Jurassic Period, sturgeon were once common in waters around our coast.More in The Irish Times
