Due to the absence of spawning habitat and conditions that are ideal for egg and larval drift through Lower Salmon Falls Dam, the establishment of a self-sustaining white sturgeon population between Lower and Upper Salmon Falls dams is unlikely. Although there may be an opportunity to develop a sport fishery using hatchery-reared white sturgeon, a stocking program would not be initiated until a thorough evaluation is conducted to ensure there would be no risks to downstream white sturgeon populations.
