Survey of the lake sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) fishery on the South Saskatchewan River, Alberta

Description

The lake sturgeon is a unique component of Alberta's wildlife and a prized sportfish. In Alberta, lake sturgeon are now confined to two areas: the North Saskatchewan and South Saskatchewan river systems. This project assessed the management utility of existing harvest data on species populations by means of a creel survey on the South Saskatchewan River conducted in the summer of 2000. The survey data were compared to data collected from an annual questionnaire sent to all holders of a sturgeon fishing licence.
