Watch Party: Urgin’ for Sturgeon
November 13, 2020 GLN Editor

Lake sturgeon are among the Great Lakes’ oldest creatures but face threats from habitat destruction, water pollution and a history of overfishing. Growing to several feet long and hundreds of pounds, these whiskered fish capture the imagination.

In this “watch party,” originally broadcast on Facebook on Nov. 6, Belle Isle Aquarium Curator Paul Shuert, WDET’s Annamarie Sysling and Great Lakes Now Program Director Sandra Svoboda chat about this prehistoric fish and answer Facebook audience questions.

Plus learn where you can pet them in aquariums around the Great Lakes, and see how restocking efforts have been stalled by pandemic.
