Fraser River White Sturgeon

A survivor from the age of the dinosaurs, White Sturgeon can attain lengths in excess of six meters, weights of over 600 kilograms, and can live for over 150 years. Find out how you can help!

The White Sturgeon is the largest and longest-lived species of freshwater fish in North America. The ancient fish is at the top of the Fraser River food web, and one of the few year-round resident species of fish in the lower Fraser River. The population of White Sturgeon in the lower Fraser River (downstream of Hell’s Gate) is a fraction of its historic levels.

Thanks to the support from our funding partners and donors that make our work possible, we identify and address issues that affect the sturgeon in the Fraser River watershed using critical data collected through its award-winning, volunteer-driven monitoring and assessment program. In addition, we conduct public relations and communication initiatives and offers a curriculum based FRSCS Sturgeon Education Program, to promote community understanding of white sturgeon.
