Sturgeon Research

With funding provided by NOAA, the National Marine Fisheries Service, and the Hudson River Foundation, we are using high-resolution side-scan sonar to image Atantic and short-nose sturgeon and their bottom habitats in the Delaware and Hudson Rivers.  The work is being conducted with Dr. Dewayne Fox and graduate student Amy Comer from Delaware State University.
