This study will develop a non-lethal sampling technique to provide data based on egg masses and fish tissue analysis for the 2   -2  1 collection seasons. Collected data will be used to determine concentrations and trends of toxic contaminants in lake sturgeon. Basic data collected will aid in the rehabilitation efforts of lake sturgeon populations throughout the Great Lakes.
