following focus areas. Proposals are encouraged from educational,
governmental, tribal, and nonprofit institutions with a 501(c)(3)

	*	Literature review and other historical documentation of
lake sturgeon distribution.
	*	Documentation of barriers that currently limit the
movement of sturgeon in historically important river systems.
	*	Field investigations that document current distribution
and abundance.

Great Lakes Basin
	*	Innovative survey methods that can provide quick,
standardized status assessments.
