Kazakhstan, Astana, Oct. 22 / Trend A. Bayjanov /
Iran has great experience in preserving sturgeon species. At present, the work is being conducted to restore their population in the Caspian Sea, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister said at a press conference in Astana.
"We have adopted a law to preserve sturgeons species. According to it, a six-month ban is imposed on fishing sturgeon, he said. It should be noted that the sturgeon spawning occurs in the south of Caspian sea, where people breed this fish.
Iran is making a great contribution to preserve ecology of the Caspian Sea, as a lot of rivers with clear mountain water run in it, he said.
There are no large industrial enterprises in the Caspian provinces of Iran, which would contaminate this part of the sea. This is important given that sturgeon comes from the north to the south of the Caspian Sea.
