I love this story. Thank you to the Sturgeon For Tomorrow volunteers and the DNR fisheries. You can check out SFT at http://www.sturgeonfortomorrow.org

Juvenile sturgeon come home to trio of rivers
Fish were less than an inch long when taken to hatchery

Garrett Graham, of Ann Arbor, who helped net the young sturgeon in May, traveled to Cheboygan to watch their homecoming.
"It's very gratifying," Graham said. "All my hard work is now paying off because these fish that are almost extinct will now have a better chance than if they were to stay in the wild. It's beautiful. It's very beautiful."

STURGEON GENERAL: Woman's devotion to prehistoric fish is catchy

Brenda Archambo's title is executive director of the Indian River Chamber of Commerce, but her friends call her the Sturgeon General.

"Make no mistake about it," she said. "This is my day job. My life's work is the sturgeon."

Archambo is the founder and president of the Sturgeon for Tomorrow Michigan chapter, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the fish and promoting research to help it survive and thrive.

Last spring, the volunteers and researchers in the Black River netted 16,300 tiny sturgeon -- each a a half to three-quarters of an inch long -- grew them to several inches in a DNR's hatchery, then released the 6,000 survivors into Black, Mullet and Burt lakes.
