Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) occurrences in the Missouri River along Nebraska's eastern border are historically sporadic and rare. Presently, the wild Lake Sturgeon population in this river reach may be extirpated. A Recovery Program initiated by the Missouri Department of Conservation...
- Conservation implications of behaviour and growth of the lake sturgeon, Acipenser fulvescens, in northern Ontario. Noakes, David L. G.; Beamish, F. William H.; Rossitera, Andrew // Environmental Biology of Fishes;Jun1999, Vol. 55 Issue 1/2, p135
We investigated the age, growth and population structure of lake sturgeon in the Groundhog and Mattagami rivers, northern Ontario, Canada. Age, estimated from counts of annuli in pectoral fin rays, ranged from 1 to 69 years (y) in the 327 fish examined. Growth, expressed as an increase in fork...

The article reports that the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources implemented a regulation change to cap lake sturgeon limits at zero, as of July 1, 2008. The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters supports efforts to conserve and rehabilitate lake sturgeon, and will work with the Ministry...
- METHUSELAH OF FRESHWATER FISHES - The LAKE STURGEON. Pearce, William A. // Conservationist;Nov/Dec86, Vol. 41 Issue 3, p10
Provides information about the freshwater fish, lake sturgeon. Factors contributing to the decline in lake sturgeon population; Sexual maturity; Growth rate.
- Sturgeon return to Red Lake. Brown, Pat // Mazina'igan;Fall2015, p23
The article offers information on the rise in the population of lake sturgeon in the Red Lakes in Minnesota after restoration program by the Red Lake Band, including earlier decline in the population due to the construction of dam on Red Lake, purchase of fish eggs and tagging of fingerlings.
- Effects of acoustic tag implantation on lake sturgeon Acipenser fulvescens: lack of evidence for changes in behavior. Hondorp, Darryl W.; Holbrook, Christopher M.; Krueger, Charles C. // Animal Biotelemetry;10/12/2015, Vol. 3 Issue 1, p1
Background: An assumption of studies using acoustic telemetry is that surgical implantation of acoustic transmitters or tags does not alter behavior of tagged individuals. Evaluating the validity of this assumption can be difficult for large fish, such as adult sturgeons, not amenable to...
- Lake sturgeon restoration register success. Erickson, Sue // Indian Life;Sep/Oct2015, Vol. 36 Issue 2, p18
The article focuses on restoration effort of Lake Sturgeon also called rock sturgeon, a North American freshwater fish, which is believed to belong to prehistoric family of fishes and historically found in Mississippi River and its tributaries.

A significant and recruiting population of Obovaria olivaria (Hickorynut Mussel) was confirmed in the Mississagi River, Lake Huron drainage, ON, Canada. This large river unionid mussel is known to use Acipenser fulvescens (Lake Sturgeon) and Scaphirhynchus platorynchus (Shovelnose Sturgeon) as...
