History of Lake Sturgeon


Michigan Environmental Education Curriculum
River and Stream Ecosystems

Historically, lake sturgeon were found in many rivers throughout the Great Lakes. Due to changes in habitat, commercial fishing, dams, and other factors, lake sturgeon populations have declined throughout the State of Michigan. The map shows the rivers in the State of Michigan that historically supported lake sturgeon populations and some that still do. Do you live near any of these rivers?
