Lake Sturgeon Research / Activities

The East Lansing Field Office conducts activities regarding lake sturgeon include converting many hydro operations from peaking to run-of-river modes of operation; working with Federal, State and Local governmental agencies and private industries to modify project proposals to afford better protection to Michigan river systems; implementing effective erosion control measures in construction and agricultural projects and practices; protecting, mitigating and restoring wetland resources that are the cornerstone of high water quality and base flow conditions in our waterways; and working with industry to clean up contaminant areas of concern.

The office also administers the Coastal Program and has provided funding for lake sturgeon projects in the Great Lakes.

Lake Sturgeon Research / Activities

Nick Utrup works on lake sturgeon passage and related issues throughout Wisconsin, which includes both Great Lakes and Mississippi River drainages. As a FERC hydropower biologist for the USFWS, he works on several projects aimed at providing passage of lake sturgeon past hydroelectric dams. One particular area of concern is the Menominee River where he is working with three different power companies to pass sturgeon past five dams. They are in the design phase on most of these projects and are currently monitoring sturgeon movement with underwater video cameras and a PIT tag antennae. Sturgeon movement data will help to design an appropriate entrance device and develop optimum attraction flows for future fish passage structures.

Darin Simpkins works with the Coastal Program. The program has provided funding for lake sturgeon projects in the Great Lakes.
