VIMS research lays foundation for sturgeon restoration
February 5, 2010
Research conducted by VIMS has helped to restore Atlantic sturgeon to the James River. The James River Association, Virginia Commonwealth University and Luck Stone led the project to create a reef that will serve as a sturgeon breeding ground. VIMS scientists have helped determine the best potential location and design for the reef, which is slated to be completed this spring, in time for sturgeon mating migration.
