Project Details

This project completed Phases I and II of a three-phase project to develop a genetics-based management plan for lake sturgeon within the Great Lakes Basin. During the course of the project, researchers (1) standardized microsatellite and mtDNA genetic markers among all geneticists studying lake sturgeon, (2) sampled key populations that are not currently targeted by any management agencies, and (3) analyzed population genetic data from these sampled populations.
