salmone del Danubio


The huchen or Danube salmon (Hucho hucho) is a species of freshwater fish in the salmon family and is severely threatened with extinction. There is now a considerable commercial effort to produce huchen fry to re-introduce the species into the wild. This requires the adults being caught just before spawning and kept in special tanks. Fry are released in appropriate places once they have reached 4 to 10 cm.
