Overfishing and habitat destruction in the early 1900s devastated lake sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) populations in the Great Lakes. Historically, the Detroit River supported one of the largest lake sturgeon populations. Studies are currently underway on the dynamics of remaining sturgeon spawning habitat in areas of channel between lakes Erie and Huron. This site includes a Fact Sheet and numerous posters to dowload.
