"Atlantic sturgeon live in the ocean but spawn in tidal freshwater. This species has been extirpated throughout most of its original range from overfishing and habitat loss, but the James River, Virginia, still maintains a viable spawning population.  Shocked In February 2012, the Chesapeake Bay population segment of Atlantic sturgeon was listed as "endangered" under the Endangered Species Act by NOAA Fisheries."

They have reports of adults in the Marshy Hope Creek,which feeds into the Nanticoke near Sharptown. One jumped into a guys boat. They did research, but didn't find any juveniles.
 I work part time in the summer at the drawbridge on the Nanticoke in Seaford. I talk to the Marine biologists all the time,they do shock surveys for Shad and Herring into the summer. Will ask them of any Sturgeon sightings.

You can see them in Richmond (looking down from the Mayo bridge) in early spring, come on up next year I will show you, they are huge, look like battleships underwater. Down river some I saw a guy in a boat with a drift net, pulled up to him to see what he was doin, was a VCU researcher studying them, he said the pop is increasing... GOOD NEWS!

I found one last year floating around the docks dead at St. Augustine beach. I called DNREC to report it.
