SBOT = Stewardship Baseline Objectives Tool

Fixed acoustic receiver station locations for monitoring adult sturgeon movements, migration and habitat use. Some stations are deployed year-round and others are deployed seasonally in migration corridors or at spawning sites.

The delineated habitats describe locations of fixed station acoustic receivers that are used to assess spawning, feeding and overwintering habitat use, use of the large lakes, estuary and marine habitats, and migration or movement patterns. Adult sturgeon have been surgically implanted with acoustic transmitters to monitor their larger scale movement patterns and their use of critical feeding, overwintering and spawning habitats. This ten year monitoring program is in its 6th year. Many interesting migration and habitat use patterns are being discovered through the program.
