Ecology of Lake Sturgeon in the Oswego Drainage, New York

Lake sturgeon are in decline throughout the Great Lakes and are protected in most states in the region.  In New York, lake sturgeon populations have been bolstered or reintroduced through hatchery release.  This research involves a collaboration between SUNY-ESF, USGS-Cortland, and the NYSDEC, focused on evaluating the ecology and population dynamics of lake sturgeon in the Oswego River drainage of central New York.  The MS-funded portion will focus on multiple aspects of lake sturgeon habitat use and availability and fish community composition, and will include considerable opportunity for interaction with state and federal agencies.  The findings of this research will provide important direction to management agencies for the recovery of the declining lake sturgeon.
