Six more juvenile lake sturgeon were tagged with transmitters last week near the mouth of the Detroit River in Lake Erie. One sturgeon was a recapture that was originally caught in a gillnet last fall. The goal of this work is to determine the habitat use and movement patterns of juvenile sturgeon to gain a better understanding of population trends. The U.S. Geological Survey Great Lakes Science Center was out assisting on these surveys. Other fish caught on the setlines included several channel catfish, yellow perch, and freshwater drum.
