A Tale of Eggs, Caviar, and Anchors: Atlantic Sturgeon in the Delaware and Hudson Rivers (Ocean Currents Lecture Series)

This is a past event

Earth, ocean, and environmental sciences enthusiasts won’t want to miss the Ocean Currents Lecture Series, continuing this summer from May to September. The lecture series is free and open to the public.

John Madsen: “A Tale of Eggs, Caviar, and Anchors:  Atlantic Sturgeon in the Delaware and Hudson Rivers." Once famous for their caviar and “Albany Beef”, Atlantic Sturgeon are now an endangered species.  Integrating acoustic, side-scan sonar, and gillnet sampling methods, we are developing population estimates and defining critical habitats for Atlantic Sturgeon in order to help conserve one of the iconic fishes of the Delaware and Hudson Rivers.
