Wildlife Wednesday – Lake Sturgeon

It’s #WildlifeWednesday with Ohio Division of Wildlife featuring the endangered lake sturgeon. This one was caught in a bottom gill net during a smallmouth bass survey off of Huron. These fish have been absent from Ohio for many years, but seem to be increasing in the Great Lakes and Ohio River drainage thanks to reintroduction programs.
