In 1995, the Habitat
Conservation Trust Foundation supported a
5-year project to improve our understanding of white sturgeon
biology and habitat requirements in the Fraser River. The overall
findings of this study can be found in the Fraser
River Monitoring Program - Comprehensive Report 1995 -1999 (PDF 6.83MB).
A two year provincial study was conducted in the Lower Fraser
to describe white sturgeon spawning habitat. The results of
this work can be found in the following documents: White
Sturgeon Spawning Habitat in the Lower Fraser River 1998 (PDF 3.04MB) and White
Sturgeon Spawning Habitat in the Lower Fraser River 1999 -
Final Report (PDF 5.7MB).
A comprehensive bibliography (PDF 541KB) captures most recent studies
