2013 Pallid Sturgeon Broodstock collection
Omaha District Leadership Development Program participants, Candace Akins, Eileen Williamson and Josh Melliger display the pallid sturgeon they caught during broodstock collection efforts with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, April 8. The pallid sturgeon measured 585 millimeters long and weighed 735 grams – not big enough to be reproduction-ready. It was returned to the river with the rest of the catch. A pallid should be at least 800 mm long before it is shipped to the hatchery.
