VCU researcher holds juvenile sturgeon

Associated Press story features sturgeon research at Rice Rivers Center

July 12, 2019

Rice Rivers Center's contribution toward the resurgance of the Atlantic Sturgeon was featured in an Associated Press story that ran nationwide earlier this week. It was picked up in news outlets such as the Washington Post, Detroit Free Press, New York Post, the Christian Science Monitor and USA Today.

From the article: “It’s really been a dramatic reversal of fortune,” said Greg Garman, a Virginia Commonwealth University ecologist who studies Atlantic sturgeon in Virginia’s James River. “We didn’t think they were there, frankly. Now, they’re almost every place we’re looking.”

Read the entire AP story, “Sturgeon, America’s forgotten dinosaurs, slowly coming back.”
