Thorn fish is a type of sturgeon, found mainly in the Aral and Caspian Seas, and also found, but in smaller quantities, in the Black and Azov Seas. This type of fish was isolated recently, but until now scientists cannot accurately determine the progenitors of the thorn fish. Some representatives of the scientific world claim that the thorn fish is an independent species, while others claim that it originated from a cross between a beluga and a sturgeon (calorizator). In addition, there are scientists who assure that the progenitors of the thorn fish are sturgeon and stellate sturgeon.

The fish got this name due to its characteristic external feature: the longitudinal surface of the fish is decorated with several rows of growths that have the shape of thorns. An adult spike fish reaches an average body weight of 20-25 kilograms with a length of 1.5 meters.

The thorn fish is listed in the Red Book of the Russian Federation, as it is a representative of a high-quality sturgeon species and is threatened with extinction.
