Status of the lake sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) in Alberta

Description

This wildlife status report looks at the lake sturgeon, a relic of the dinosaur age which has so far survived a history of over-harvest, habitat disturbance and population fragmentation. In Alberta, sturgeon populations are resident in both the North Saskatchewan and South Saskatchewan river systems. Their status is currently ranked as Undetermined in the province. This report is part of the Alberta Wildlife Status Report series, which provides comprehensive summaries of selected wildlife species intended to be useful to those managing populations of species and their habitats, and to help identify species that may be formally designated as endangered or threatened.
