As part of efforts to restore the sturgeon population in the Caspian Sea, which is under threat of extinction, Azerbaijan’s largest investor in the fish industry, Azerbaijan Fish Farm, in collaboration with AZANS (Air Traffic Control “Azerbaijan Airlines” AZAL), released 5000 sturgeon fish into the Caspian Sea.

Sturgeons, playing a crucial ecological role in the Caspian Sea ecosystem, face serious threats due to habitat destruction, overfishing, and poaching. Recognizing the importance of preserving these unique creatures, Azerbaijan Fish Farm and AZANS organized the release of 5000 endemic sturgeon fish back into their natural habitat. This necessary and important action not only contributed to further sturgeon population recovery but also aimed to raise awareness about the need to protect rare species and their ecosystems.

The event aligns directly with Azerbaijan’s green agenda, which includes a range of measures for environmental conservation and sustainable development. The restoration of sturgeon populations and protection of endemics reflect the country’s commitment to biodiversity conservation and support for natural ecosystems, integral parts of its national environmental policy. Azerbaijan actively and successfully implements environmentally sustainable practices and initiatives aimed at reducing negative impacts on nature and ensuring the well-being of future generations.

It’s worth noting that Azerbaijan Fish Farm and AZANS’ commitment to the green agenda and sustainable development is evident through their initiatives aimed at environmental conservation and maintaining ecological balance. A shining example is their collaborative efforts in restoring and preserving populations of rare and endangered species like sturgeons, highlighting their responsibility towards nature and future generations. Such efforts underscore their commitment to maintaining ecological balance and sustainable development, which in turn supports the realization of Azerbaijan’s national green agenda.
