Sturgeon making a comeback
The homely sturgeon was nearly wiped out in the James River by overfishing in the late 1800s. NOAA listed four varieties of Atlantic sturgeon as endangered in 2013. But they seem to be making a comeback. A few have been spotted in the James River and in various spots in the Chesapeake Bay. Are they Chesapeake Bay sturgeon or migrating from the Potomac River? Some have radio tags and are being tracked. But these are not easy fish to capture.
