  • Description:
    The S.O. Conte Anadromous Fish Research Center; USGS, Box 796 (One Migratory Way, Turners Falls, Massachusetts 01376), is requesting authorization for a scientific research permit for takes of shortnose sturgeon (Acipenser brevirostrum) in the wild and captivity pursuant to the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. สนสน 1531 et seq.). The applicant proposes to determine up and downstream migrations, habitat use, spawning periodicity, and seasonal movements of shortnose sturgeon in the Connecticut River (from Agawam, MA to Montague, MA). The applicant also proposes short-term captive animal research of wild origin shortnose sturgeon in laboratory tests of up- and downstream fish passage studies, swimming performance tests, tagging studies, anesthesiology, behavior, physiology, and contaminant studies. Furthermore, the applicant requests authorization for collecting fertilized embryo from the Merrimack River (MA), Kennebec River, and Androscoggin River (ME), to produce non-releasable progeny for larval research in the laboratory. The permit would be valid for five years upon issuance.
