Synopsis of biological data on shortnose sturgeon, Acipenser brevirostrum LeSueur 1818

  title={Synopsis of biological data on shortnose sturgeon, Acipenser brevirostrum LeSueur 1818},
  author={Michael J. Dadswell and Bruce D. Taubert and Thomas S. Squiers and Donald E. Marchette and J. S. Buckley},
Information on the biology and populations of the shortnose sturgeon, Acipenser brevirostrum, is compiled, reviewed, and analyzed in the FAO species synopsis style. New information indicates this species exhibits biological and life-cycle differences over its north-south latitudinal range and that it is more abundant than previously thought.

Delineation of discrete population segments of shortnose sturgeon Acipenser brevirostrum based on mitochondrial DNA control region sequence analysis

The genetic results indicate that most, but not all, rivers with shortnose sturgeon host genetically discrete populations, constituting important information in the consideration of DPS designations, however, long-term migrations through coastal waters to proximal rivers and release of hatchery-reared fish may confound results and lead to the possible misidentification of discrete population segments.

Population genetics of shortnose sturgeon Acipenser brevirostrum based on mitochondrial DNA control region sequences

Analysis of molecular variance best supported a five‐region hierarchical grouping of populations, but the results indicate that in almost all cases populations of shortnose sturgeon should be managed as separate units.
