Fish surveys have shown that Humbug Marsh provides habitat for the lake sturgeon, a Michigan Threatened Species. Although the lake sturgeon prefers to spawn in the rocky outcroppings located in the fast moving waters of the Detroit River, it frequently travels into marshy areas like Humbug Marsh for food.
