Be a part of a Sturgeon Research Project

One of the most unique research projects in Northern BC is now available for the community to take part or for professional development purposes for biologists.  The White Sturgeon Biology Tour in partnership with Lheidli Tenneh fisheries allows individuals to experience the searching, catching, observing and recording of white sturgeon on the upper Fraser River.  One of the first techniques that the guests are exposed to is the use of radio telemetry in tracking previously tagged White Sturgeon.  By using an antenna and receiver we can pin point the location of these prehistoric creatures. The tour is conducted in jet boats as we boat to known holding locations of the fish and then use angling and set lines to catch these fish for the research project.
