Lake Sturgeon

  • From:
    Canada, St. Lawrence River
    Method:
    Wild, Gillnet

Lake sturgeon caught in the Saint Lawrence River in Canada with gillnets is on the “Avoid” list because the size of this threatened population and the impacts of commercial fishing are unknown. Also, there is no management strategy to help the population recover. This fishery only produces smoked sturgeon, not caviar.
