Because of their threatened status, sturgeons have been the focus of broad scientific interest. This book provides new information on freshwater, estuarine, and marine habitats of anadromous sturgeons; examines threats to habitats and populations; and reviews management and population trends in light of progress on recovery of U.S. Atlantic sturgeon populations since fishing was banned.
Part I Habitats
Macrobenthos Assemblages in the St. Lawrence Estuarine Transition Zone and Their Potential as Food for Atlantic Sturgeon and Lake Sturgeon (Pierre Nellis, Jean Munro, Daniel Hatin, Gaston Desrosiers, Rachel D. Simons, and Frédéric Guilbard)
Movements, Home Range Size, and Habitat Use and Selection of Early Juvenile Atlantic Sturgeon in the St. Lawrence Estuarine Transition Zone (Daniel Hatin, Jean Munro, François Caron, and Rachel D. Simons)
