Fraser River Sturgeon Project Featured on CBC

CBC put together some great coverage of an HCTF-funded project that is tracking sturgeon in the Lower Fraser River. Project leader Erin Stoddard, dubbed the “sturgeon surgeon”, implants acoustical tags in these giant, prehistoric fish so that scientists can learn more about their movements and spawning sites, and can use this information to suggest policy changes that will protect them.
