If you wish, here is the .pdf file, 2016 Pallid Sturgeon Broodstock Newsletter
Collecting eggs from sexually mature Pallid Sturgeon in Nebraska’s stretch of the Missouri River and then producing young fish from the eggs and milt of those brood fish for stocking back into the river is an important part of recovery efforts for Pallid Sturgeon. This effort is a huge undertaking each spring and goes on for several days under all weather and water conditions. As you can see from the newsletter we have a lot of help each spring and again I want to say THANK YOU to all involved! We appreciate it!
The collections for this year are done, but you can follow updates and news on the FaceBook page, NGPC Pallid Sturgeon Broodstock
The work can be wet and cold, and honestly a little dirty too. There are a lot of nightcrawlers that get put on a lot of hooks. But, I know the crews have fun while they are on the river, something about eating worms or something! Apparently they have to “test” the bait?
