Astana will host a meeting with the participation of the Caspian littoral states to discuss a moratorium on commercial sturgeon fishing in the Caspian Sea," the ministry said.

According to Trend, the issue of the preservation and restoration of sturgeon species is transboundary and concerns all of the littoral states - Russia, Kazakhstan, Iran, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan.

"In this regard, the Kazakh Agriculture Ministry has developed a draft of a five-sided agreement on a moratorium on sturgeon fishing for commercial purposes," the ministry said.
