The Stocking of Chinese Sturgeon (Aclpenser Sinensis Grdy) Fry Initiated in Hubei

A fish stocking of Chinese sturgeon was done on April 22, 2008 in Jinzhou, Hubei with the theme “Protecting aquatic animals and building excellent ecosystem”. During the event, 52800 Chinese sturgeon fingerlings of different sizes were released into the Yangtze River. This event is one of the important activities featuring wild aquatic animal releasing nationwide. It is initiated by Yangtze River Fisheries Research Institute (YRFRI), and supported by Bureau of Fisheries in Hubei Province, Bureau of Fishery Management in Jinzhou City, and other management agencies. All the stocked fingerlings are artificially bred and cultured by YRFRI, among which there are 52,000 6-month old with body length of 25-45cm and 800 18-month old with body length of 65-85cm, being marked with DCWT, PIT or anchor buoy respectively. Since 1983, YRFRI has stocked over 2,000,000 Chinese Sturgeon.
