Superior Speaker Series: Sturgeon in Wisconsin - living fossils in a modern world

Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Join Paul Piszczek, WDNR Fisheries biologist, to learn about sturgeon in the St. Louis River and Estuary. Sturgeon are often referred to as “living fossils”. These ancient fish can live over 100 years and are highly dependent on good water quality to survive. Wisconsin and Minnesota DNR staff have worked together to stock and study sturgeon in the St. Louis River (SLR). Recent successes in establishing sturgeon in the region speaks to the ongoing efforts to restore the SLR Estuary. Paul will weave together a story of history, general biology and ecology, research, fisheries management, and Lake Superior… all via sturgeon. Light refreshments will be served. This event is FREE and open to the public.
