Special exhibition “The Return of the Sturgeons” at the Tropenhaus Frutigen

Visit a state-of-the-art travelling exhibition

Overfishing, pollution and interference with natural habitats are all reasons why more than half of all 26 species of sturgeon are threatened with extinction. Since 1990, efforts have been made in Europe to reintroduce this fascinating fish – efforts that have proved successful. The aim is to restore self-sustaining populations of sturgeon to their former areas of distribution.
