Sturgeon release

Last week, I participated in a sturgeon release with out local conservation institute.

In the 1970s the Lake Sturgeon had all but disappeared from the Tennessee River due to overfishing, poor water quality and man-made alterations to the waterway. By the late 1990s, landmark legislation and responsible water management practices had improved conditions to the point that biologists thought it possible for the river to once again support a population of these ancient fish.
