Milwaukee River Lake Sturgeon Update with the Wisconsin DNR

Join WDNR fisheries biologist, Aaron Schiller to learn about the current status of the Milwaukee River Lake Sturgeon Program and what’s coming next! Since the start of the Milwaukee River Lake Sturgeon Rehabilitation Program in 2006, over 100 sturgeon have been re-captured in various WDNR surveys. The goal of the project has been to:

-Re-establish a self-sustaining spawning population of Lake Sturgeon in the Milwaukee River system
-Annually stock 1,000 fingerlings using a streamside rearing facility
-Develop sturgeon population assessments in Milwaukee River
-Adjust methods as knowledge develops to improve survival and return to the river
-Improve habitat where needed and possible

Come hear about the status of the program and bring your questions!
