Project Details

Recent assessment strategies for lake sturgeon within the Lake Michigan basin are utilizing Passive Integrated (PIT) Tags to mark individual fish. Unfortunately, only a few agencies were able to 'read' these tags when they were encountered. Funding obtained through this grant was used to acquire 12 Avid-Power Tracker V systems to distribute to seven agencies performing open-water assessments on Lake Michigan. Data collected from this cooperative effort were directed to the Lake Michigan Sturgeon Task Group.
