Information on each sturgeon is carefully recorded including:

  • Where and when it was captured.
  • Whether it already has a tag and is therefore a recapture.
  • How much it weighs and how long it is.
  • Numbers of any previously or newly attached tags.

Sturgeon are released at the same location where they were captured.
