Green Sturgeon Activities

Have you ever caught a dinosaur?  Sturgeon are one of the oldest families of fish in existence. Green Sturgeon and White Sturgeon on the West Coast are long-lived and a slow-growing fish. How do those life history traits affect an ESA threatened species like the Green Sturgeon. Green sturgeon are anadromous fish and live primarily in the sea and breed in fresh water.  Compare and contrast this fish to other species such as salmon, steelhead, or other ESA listed species.
