From WWF : Within the space of less than a month, two specimens of a vanishingly rare fish have been plucked from the waters of the Rioni River in Georgia. Before these two juveniles were caught, conservationists had expressed fears that the critically endangered ship sturgeon might have already sunk without trace. This extraordinary, other-worldly fish – whose evolution dates back hundreds of millions of years – had not been seen alive in the wild for many years.

The IBKF is the directory board for any matter concerning Lake Constance fishery. The board meets once a year, whereas the boards chairman changes every three years on a rotational basis. Resolutions on fishery regulations must be decided unanimously to make sure the interests of all contracting states are respected. Resolutions made by the IBKF must be implemented in national law. The decisions of the IBKF are assembled in the assemblage of resolutions.

The Marañón is one of the last major free flowing tributaries to the Amazon. It is a vital link between the Andes Mountains and the Amazonian lowlands. Each year at high water the Marañón runs brown with sediment flowing down from the mountains. This is deposited in the rainforest, essentially feeding the Amazon with soil and nutrients that the ecosystems need to survive. If this connectivity between mountains and Amazon is broken, the results will be disastrous.
