    Hi all. I'm trying to find out whether there have been any Sea Sturgeons (Atlantic/European species - Acipenser sturio) held in any aquariums/zoos in the UK. I'm not getting many answers from Google, I just wondered if there is anyone here who would know? Cheers. :)

    I remember a few years back a couple of medium sized sturgeon, in the large tank at deep sea world, South Queensferry, but i could not tell u what species they were
