Project Details

This project enhanced an interactive web-based GIS application and meta-database of Great Lakes lake sturgeon information. The updated database and GIS were used to enhance the existing maps and database developed for the 2000 and 2002 GLFT Lake Sturgeon Workshops. We have compiled the available lake sturgeon data sources to help focus restoration and research activities on priority lake sturgeon waters. Lake sturgeon researchers are the intended audience; however, it will also be useful to natural resource managers, biologists and those interested in sturgeon research throughout the Great Lakes Basin.
