Corps team rescues white sturgeon at Chittenden Locks
A U.S. Army Corps of Engineers team rescued a 6-foot white sturgeon during the annual maintenance pump out at the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks November 10. Each year, Corps natural resource staff, fish biologists, scientists and volunteers go on a fish-rescue mission when the locks are drained. To ensure Endangered Species Act listed fish are safe, the team must capture, haul them out of the 50-foot deep chamber and release them. The team doesn’t limit its efforts to ESA listed species and this year the rescue included an estimated 100-pound sturgeon.
