Abstract: In the Middle Ages, sturgeons were the most important subjects of Hungarian fisheries, but they became extreme rare by the end of 19th century. One species is only common in the Hungarian section of the Danube recently. The efficiency of the passive legal protection of sturgeons is a rather doubtful tool for the conservation of their populations. The artificial reproduction and the raising of Danubian sturgeons have already been developed, however interspecific androgenesis technology could provide a new, promising perspective in the restoration programs of species near to extinction.
