Shortnose Sturgeon Study Underway in State


Author(s):
Abstract:
The shortnose sturgeon is the only federally-listed endangered marine fish in the state's waters. An intensive study is being conducted by the North Carolina Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit in the Cape Fear River system to determine the abundance and distribution patterns of this fish. The shortnose sturgeon was considered extinct in North Carolina waters until one was caught in the Brunswick River in 1987.
