Nechako White Sturgeon

White Sturgeon

Nechako White Sturgeon are critically endangered and have been listed under schedule 1 of the Federal Species at Risk Act. After finding evidence of a significant population decline, the Ministry of Environment initiated a recovery process in 2000. A partnership amongst First Nations, Governments and the community, called the Nechako White Sturgeon Recovery Initiative, is currently working towards recovery of this population through stewardship, conservation fish culture and habitat research and restoration.
