Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.

Sturgeons are large fish. The fact that the game does not consider them predatory does not stop them from happily biting off a few chunks of your dwarves, given opportunity. They can seriously wound or even kill a trained war dog, though that dog can sometimes kill them. They will scare away civilian dwarves. They may also be able to kill a low level dwarf.

They are also extremely dangerous in adventure mode, where they can easily chew your head off in mere seconds. If you do find yourself attacked by a sturgeon (for whatever reason), you should simply run away, as they only attack creatures adjacent to them.
