Scientist studies decline of lake sturgeon
The lake sturgeon was designated an endangered species under the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada last May.Lake sturgeon, which have remained virtually unchanged as a species since the time of dinosaurs, are Canada's largest freshwater fish, reaching lengths of over two metres and weights of up to 140 kilograms.They can live for more than 100 years, but can take as long as 20 years to reach maturity, and spawn as infrequently as once every five years. Experts say overfishing and pollution have also contributed to the decimation of the fish's population.
