Effects of the Reservoir Headwater Environment on Survival and Behavior of Larval Sturgeon

Shovelnose sturgeon from the Marias River, MT

Duration

December 2007 - October 2011

Narrative

Our goal is to determine the fate and behavior of larval pallid sturgeon and shovelnose sturgeon in a reservoir headwater. The results from this study will address the contemporary theory that sturgeon larvae drift in to reservoirs and succumb to mortality, thus the lack of sturgeon recruitment is a function of drift distance and reservoir headwater environments.
