With the largest mobile aquarium in Europe placed in the heart of Vienna from June 21st to 23rd, attention was drawn to the precarious situation of the sturgeons and the importance of preserving and protecting the unique habitat of the Danube. This impressive installation, measuring twelve meters in length and containing 60,000 liters of water, featured sturgeons and other Danube fish and brought the project and the Danube ecosystem closer to the public.

This event, part of the Danube Day 2024, was made possible through collaboration with the Natural History Museum and the Burghauptmannschaft. Representatives of the largest Austrian project partners were awarded sturgeon sponsorships as a symbol of their long-term commitment.
