Project Details

Successful restoration of lake sturgeon throughout the Great Lakes requires knowledge of fundamental but little-known aspects of the species' early life history and of the impacts of proposed restoration activities on remnant populations. Restoration of remnant or extirpated populations will likely necessitate supplementation. Researchers conducted replicated experiments addressing the efficacy of alternative supplementation strategies for use in the Great Lakes basin.
