PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Institute for Multidisciplinary Research University of Belgrade, Serbia and Research Institute for Fisheries, Aquaculture and Irrigation, Szarvas, Hungary developed joint system to protect and manage common natural resources: sterlet populations in Serbia and Hungary. This was done by common work of two countries and collaboration between them, which has resulted in preparation of Handbook for sterlet aquaculture and Activity plan for sustainable use and protection of sterlet. Both publications are a good basis for decision makers in Serbia and Hungary to implement sustainable use of sterlet populations. Results involve also sterlet age structure, sublethal effects of water and sediment pollution on sterlet population, and extent of heavy metal accumulation in sterlet tissue. They could represent a good basis to use this fish species as one of the main Biological Quality Elements for assessment of ecological status of a river, according to EU Water Framework Directive.
