On Monday evening, September 24th, join Lambton Wildlife for a presentation on Sturgeon in the Great Lakes. Social gathering goes from 7:00 to 7:30pm with the presentation starting soon after.
Research surrounding lake sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) feeding ecology in the Great Lakes is dated compared to other aspects of their ecology, despite their threatened status. Recent research has demonstrated different migration strategies exist in lake sturgeon from the Lake Huron-to-Lake Erie corridor (HEC), but dietary links are lacking in this system. Additionally, food web structures have been known to shift with new biological invasions, however little is known about the effects they have on native species found within the HEC. These knowledge gaps led to the question of whether or not lake sturgeon feeding ecology varies both temporally and spatially within the HEC. This interdisciplinary approach of combining movement and feeding ecology can be applied to other species and other study systems.
