Restore Sturgeon Habitat in the Rapids on the Grand

One of the objectives of the Grand Rapids Whitewater project is to restore the historic lake sturgeon spawning habitat in downtown Grand Rapids.

Above is a video of  the USGS Great Lakes Science Center dive team documenting egg deposition by the threatened lake sturgeon on a man-made spawning reef in the St. Clair River — while the reef was still being constructed.

Grand Rapids could have this level of successful sturgeon spawning!
