Harald, a beluga sturgeon, had been wired up to a satellite transmitter in 2009.

Scientists hoped that by tracking his movements they could learn the causes of the sturgeons’ decline.

They have been prized for their meat and caviar since Roman times, but their numbers have plummeted since 1989 due to an explosion in illegal poaching following the collapse the Soviet bloc.
