DNR Asks To Get Sturgeon Registered Quick Saturday

With wind chills expected to be from 20 to 25 degrees below zero until at least mid-morning Saturday, sturgeon spearers are being asked to register their fish as soon as they can get them to a registration station. DNR Sturgeon Biologist Ryan Koenigs says that will reduce the exposure time of the fish to the conditions and make it much easier for DNR staff to register the fish and collect the necessary data.  Bringing fish in shortly after harvest will also reduce the registration lines at closure and thus shorten wait time.
