GCRL Virtual Science Café: Gulf Sturgeon, Hidden Giants of Our Coastal Rivers

Sturgeon are one of the oldest extant lineages of fish and also one of the most interesting. Gulf sturgeon are a protected species in habiting coastal drainages in the northern Gulf of Mexico. In Mississippi’s waters, Gulf sturgeon have spawning populations in the Pearl and Pascagoula Rivers, which also happen to be some of the most understudied river systems for this species. They also happen to be the two systems where the species has been slowest to show signs of recovery. This species makes seasonal migrations between coastal rivers, where they can even be seen jumping, to estuarine and marine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. 

This Virtual Science Café will be presented via Zoom by Dr. Michael Andres, Assistant Research Professor, Division of Coastal Sciences, School of Ocean Science and Engineering.
