Fish change eating habits as autumn approaches

Published September 15. 2006
Leaping Suwannee River sturgeon have made the news lately in a negative light, having seriously injured boaters on the Suwannee. Each was just doing what they do - boaters boat and sturgeons jump. The sturgeon population seems to have grown greatly of late, and the U.S. Geological Survey is performing a census of Gulf sturgeon in the Suwannee River.

The group spends Wednesdays on the river near Fanning Springs, and is looking for volunteers to help temporarily capture, measure, weigh, and tag the big fish.
