  • Abstract Shovelnose sturgeon Scaphirhynchus platorynchus support a commercial fishery throughout much of the Mississippi and Missouri River drainages. [...] Key Method Population attributes of shovelnose sturgeon were examined in the upper Wabash River, Indiana, from April 2003 through November 2004 between Wabash and Terre Haute. Fish (N = 4,849) were captured by direct current electrofishing, experimental gill nets, and benthic trawls. Electrofishing catch per unit effort varied on a temporal basis, being…Expand Abstract
