Pallid Sturgeon Release

Detailed Description

USGS Fishery Biologist, Pat Braaten, and biologists from USGS Columbia Environmental Research Center and the Fort Peck Field Office release a telemetry-tagged, female pallid sturgeon after recapturing her to check her reproductive status.   She was still full of ripe, black eggs, and had not yet spawned when she was netted.
