KESHENA - For the first time in more than a century, there is evidence sturgeon are reproducing naturally at Keshena Falls, the Department of Natural Resources says.
In a survey done this week by the DNR, Menominee Indian Tribe fisheries staff and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 10 larval sturgeon were captured.
Sturgeon have been spawning at Keshena Falls on the Wolf River since 2012, after a joint effort between the DNR and Menominee tribe to restock the fish. Historically, the fish had spawned in the area until two dams were built in the late 1800s.
"This is a historic day for the Menominee Nation. Once again, history has repeated itself with the return of the sturgeon to Keshena Falls. The Menominee people are grateful to the Creator for this day," Tribal Chairman Craig Corn said in a news release.
The DNR says the efforts are aimed at helping tribal members reconnect with their heritage, as sturgeon are important to the Menominee culture.
