What Keeps a Legend Alive? You can help!

Give the Gift that Keeps On Swimmin'! Adopt a Sturgeon and Make a Difference today!

You CAN make a difference for this prehistoric species. We invite you to participate in our Adopt a Sturgeon program or make a general donation and become part of the future for this magnificent giant that lives in our Fraser River. Have you have ever been to Steveston, Richmond, New Westminster Quay, travelled up to Hope or Hell's Gate - or simply crossed the Port Mann Bridge? If you have, then chances are you have crossed the path of the Great White Sturgeon.

Adopt a Sturgeon The FRSCS Adopt a Sturgeon Program is an interactive program that allows 'adoptive parents' to track their fish and learn more about its habitat, issues affecting its survival and its life story through our research and recapture history. Each adoption includes tagging information, the general river location where it has been sampled, its growth and updates on ongoing recaptures. You will also receive breaking news about sturgeon discoveries, upcoming events and the opportunity to get involved to make a difference!. Adopting a Sturgeon is a great gift for the fishing enthusiast and the conservationist in your life. Honor a loved one with an adoption in their name or bring your colleagues together for a corporate adoption!

You can donate online for your adoption or contact us directly. Once complete, you will receive details of your adoption.
