BACKGROUND INFORMATION ABOUT THE GREAT LAKES LAKE STURGEON WEBSITE
to background information about the Great Lakes Lake Sturgeon
website, the site map, and contact information.
site was established to provide focus for lake sturgeon
restoration and management activities throughout the Great
Lakes Basin. Over the past few years interest and
efforts directed at the recovery of this native Great
Lakes fish species have been increasing without the benefits
of visibility afforded to sport species. Federal,
state, tribal, provincial and academic natural resource
specialists have been communicating and collaborating
for compilation of status and trends information on the
species in numerous Great Lakes locations. A website specifically focused on Great Lakes lake sturgeon
was thought to be appropriate to enhance the efficiency
of this information exchange.
In an effort to provide leadership for this multi-agency,
interbasin collaborative effort, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service-Alpena Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office
secured internal funding for creation and maintenance
of this website through its Great
Lakes Basin Ecosystem Team. This page
contains information from a number of agencies working
on lake sturgeon management, research, conservation and
restoration in the Great Lakes basin, as well as links
to other lake sturgeon associated web sites.
The long-range goal of this site is to have it
serve as a focal point for anyone wanting information
on Great Lakes lake sturgeon.
