Release and Recovery Data for Tagged Fraser River White Sturgeon, Acipenser Transmontanus, in 1985Microform - 1987
Because of their long life span and late age of maturity, white sturgeon may move extensively as juveniles or adults or both. More than 700 white sturgeon from several localities in the lower Fraser River were captured and tagged during May to September, 1985 to study their migration patterns, abundance, and rate of growth. This report summarizes, by month and locality, the number of sturgeon caught and tagged, the length and weight of each tagged sturgeon by date and locality of capture and release, and the recapture date and locality for all tagged sturgeon recovered in 1985.
