Score Card

Sampling for pallid sturgeon is in full swing!  As of April 1, Comprehensive Sturgeon Research Program crews have implanted telemetry transmitters into four non-reproductive females and one reproductive male within the lower study section and one non-reproductive male in the upper study section.

Additionally, eight pallid sturgeon previously implanted with telemetry devices have been recaptured and their reproductive condition reassessed.  Research crews will be particularly interested in the movements and behavior of two reproductive males and one reproductive female in the upper study section.  The two males were initially tagged in 2008 and the female was initially tagged in 2007.  The long history of these fish will make watching their movements even more interesting.

It is also noteworthy that several pallid sturgeon have been captured or recaptured by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Columbia Fish and Wildlife Resources Office, Missouri Department of Conservation Chillicothe Office, and Nebraska Game and Parks Commission Lincoln Fisheries Department.  With much gratitude we thank them for their cooperation and collaboration!
