VIU Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity

International Centre for Sturgeon Studies

Web Site:

The ICSS conducts research that has application in four main areas; wild populations, conservation hatcheries, commercial culture, and socioeconomics issues. A major goal of the Centre will be to facilitate cooperation between conservation and aquaculture activities at regional, national and international levels. To that end, a research team has been assembled that includes world-class and emerging new scientists from across Canada, the United States and Europe. The ICSS will provide the link necessary to form a cluster of industry, university, government and non-government organizations involved in sturgeon research.
