Abstract
    Experiments were carried out in order to evaluate a reliable method for the cryopreservation of sterlet (Acipenser ruthenus L.) sperm. The effects of three cryoprotectants - dimethyl-sulfoxide (DMSO), dimethyl-acetamide (DMA) and methanol - and three basic extenders - two organic and one saline - were investigated on the motility and fertilising capacity of sterlet sperm. Best post-thaw motility (46 plus or minus 23%) was achieved using 10 % methanol. No significant difference was detected between the two organic extenders. The use of methanol resulted in significantly higher fertilisation rate (22 plus or minus 15%) than DMSO (2 plus or minus 4%) and no fertilisation was detected using DMA.
