Polyodon spathula – a Specie of Interest for Pisciculture in Eastern European Countries, Study on Meat Quality and Environmental Impact in Romania


Paddlefish have been present in Eastern Europe since 1974, although in some of these nations, their population has only grown during the past 20 years. A closer examination of the effects of this species on the environment in those areas, the study of morphological and productive characteristics, and the quantitative and qualitative characteristics of meat from paddlefish populations in Eastern Europe have all been made possible by the continual increase in Polyodon spathula. The high meat nutritional benefits of the Polyodon spathula, which are closely related to its high protein content, make its upbringing highly recommended. vitamins, minerals, and unsaturated fat content. Sturgeon in their natural habitats can be maintained and conserved while also bringing financial rewards to producers through Polyodon spathula pisciculture. Due to its planktonofagan feeding habits and lack of competition with native fish species, Polyodon spathula poses a low ecological danger to numerous fish populations in Romania. Furthermore, introgression is not viable due to the genetic differences with native acipenseride. Use of Polyodon spathula could be advised in Despite the fact that there are currently no conclusive data regarding its detrimental impact on the autochthonous ichtyofauna and its role in other fish extinctions or dramatic decreases in their numbers, different aquaculture farms are being used to obtain high-quality fish meat and to increase the economic value of Romanian fish meat production.
