SBOT = Stewardship Baseline Objectives Tool

Habitats where sturgeon spawning has been confirmed or suspected. The described habitats identify locations where sturgeon eggs and larvae have been collected historically and recently. To better understand the effectiveness and reproductive capacity of the spawn, it’s important that spawning habitat assessments are completed on a regular schedule as the river undergoes habitat changes, especially in the gravel reach where sturgeon spawn. The Herrling Side Channel location is periodically assessed (2 years on, 2 years off) for this reason. Other locations have been intermittently assessed in the past, but are planned for regular assessment in the future.
