2011 Sturgeon Workshop

NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service's Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries Office (GARFO) and Southeast Regional Office (SERO) collaborated to hold a three day workshop on Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon conservation and recovery on Febraury 8-10, 2011 in Alexandria, VA.  Invited presenters shared results of pertinent research, and working groups facilitated robust discussions on topics such as research needs, habitat use and impacts.  Materials from the workshop, including presentations, working group notes, and supplemental information (two presentations submitted but not presented on at the workshop) are provided below.
