LAKE STURGEON (Acipenser rubicundus) The history of the Sturgeon is a story of wanton waste. When the fisheries of the Great Lakes were firstbeing exploited, the Sturgeon was destroyed as useless. Now that its great value is recognized, it may be too late to save it from extinction, as fish-culturists have not been able tosolve the problems connected with its propagation. The Sturgeon is valued chiefly for the caviar made from its eggs.
