Abstract The fishery for Atlantic sturgeon, Acipenser oxyrhynchus, in South Carolina has undergone a dramatic decline since the turn of the century. Nevertheless, in 1976, South Carolina accounted for 55% of the total United States landings (Maine-Louisiana) for this species. Fishing is seasonal with most effort expended during March-May. The Winyah Bay system near Georgetown supports the primary fishing activity in the state. Major products are the flesh and roe ( caviar ) with the estimated…

Empirical Evidence of Fall Spawning by Atlantic Sturgeon in the James River, Virginia
Abstract Due to overfishing and habitat alteration, the anadromous Atlantic sturgeon Acipenser oxyrinchus oxyrinchus is severely depleted across its historic range. The James and York rivers in
The fishery, biology, and management of Atlantic sturgeon, Acipenser oxyrhynchus, in North America
TLDR
Biological data are needed to identify and characterize specific spawning and nursery areas; delineate migratory patterns and recruitment to various stocks; establish stock abundance; and, assess effects of various management strategies.

Annual Run Size and Genetic Characteristics of Atlantic Sturgeon in the Altamaha River, Georgia
TLDR
The objective of this study was to estimate annual run size and age structure of the spring spawning migration of the Altamaha River sturgeon population and to determine genetic relatedness between this population and other Georgia populations.
Dual Annual Spawning Races in Atlantic Sturgeon
TLDR
A dual spawning strategy that likely occurs in various degrees along most, if not all, of the Atlantic sturgeon's range is described which managers and researchers should note when determining the status of AtlanticSturgeon populations and implementing conservation measures.
Review of the biology, fisheries, and conservation status of the Atlantic Sturgeon, Acipenser oxyrinchus oxyrinchus Mitchill, 1815
TLDR
The Atlantic Sturgeon is a large member of the family Acipenseridae, historically reaching lengths of at least 4.6 m in length, and there is evidence that at least 35 North American rivers historically supported spawning populations, although only about 27 rivers are currently known or suspected to support spawning populations.
