Project Details

Although PIT tags are a principal component of sturgeon assessment and management many agencies that target or encounter sturgeon lack the capability to detect or implant PIT tags, missing opportunities to share data. This grant money was used to purchase two types of readers and tagging supplies; these were distributed to 12 agencies with 17 offices. Data is being exchanged through the Sturgeon Tag Database and at Sturgeon Coordination Meetings.
