Purpose. Forming a thematic bibliographic list of English-language publications on certain issues of vital activity of sturgeon (Acipenseridae), both in natural conditions and in aquaculture. Particular attention was given to species that are not common in aquaculture of Ukraine.

Methods. The complete and selective methods were applied in the process of the systematic search. The bibliographic core was made up of literary sources from electronic archives of world-renowned specialized scientific journals. In particular: Journal of Applied Ichthyology, Environmental Biology of Fishes,Conservation Biology, Lake and Reservoir Management, Estuaries,Freshwater Fisheries, Aquaculture, North American Journal of Fisheries Management, Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences, Copeia & others.

Results. A thematic list of main publications including thematic scientific collections, materials of international scientific and practical conferences, scientific articles and abstracts of dissertations was composed. It consists of 187 English-language papers. Presented publications cover the time interval for the last thirty years. The literary sources are arranged in alphabetical order by author or title, and described according to DSTU 8302:2015 “Information and documentation. Bibliographic reference. General principles and rules of composition”, with the amendments (code UKND 01.140.40), as well as in accordance with the requirements of APA style ‒ international standard of references.

Practical value. The prepared list may be useful for scientists, practitioners, students, whose sphere of interests is related to issues of questions breeding sturgeon in aquaculture and conservation of populations of rare species of fish.

Key words: sturgeon (Acipenseridae), aquaculture, Acipenser baeri, A. brevirostrum, A. debryanus, A. fulvescens, A. gueldenstaedti, A. medirosris, A. mikadoi, A. naccarii, A. oxyrhynchus, A. persicus, A. ruthenus, A. schrenckii, A. sinensis, A. stellatus, A. sturio, A. transmontanus, Huso dauricus, Huso huso.
