Elevator Helping Sturgeon Bypass Dams, Grow Their Numbers In Menominee River | Wisconsin Public Radio
Sturgeon numbers in the Great Lakes have dwindled heavily over the years, due in part to dams blocking their spawning patterns. For the last several years, a fish elevator on the Menominee River has helped sturgeon find their way. We talk with two biologists about how it works and how they’re tracking their progress. Biology Prof. Patrick Forsythe is interviewed.
