Population characteristics, habitat associations, and population estimate of Shovelnose Sturgeon in the lower Platte River, Nebraska

Jeremy Hammen, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Abstract

The Convention of International Trade of Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) listed every member of the Acipenseridae family as either an Appendix I or Appendix II protected species, resulting in regulation of any commercial trade by the provisions of CITES. Shovelnose Sturgeon are among this listing. Declines in populations throughout their range (Mississippi and Missouri River Basins) have taken place over the past few decades. These declines in populations have made it crucial to better understand the life-history characteristics of Shovelnose Sturgeon. This dissertation provides insight into the population patterns of a Shovelnose Sturgeon population in the lower Platte River, Nebraska, and helps fill gaps in information needed to make appropriate management decisions for Shovelnose Sturgeon.^
