We’ve been working on this project for four years and this is our second release. Last year we released 12 adults, this year we released 15.
This is an important fish to our community as we have sturgeon clan members here. We almost lost our sturgeon here on the Winnipeg River because of the mills, the pollution, and dams.
By cultivating our partnerships with Rainy River First Nation, Ontario Power Generation, and Kenora MNR we are focusing on the fact that when we take out our differences a lot of our beliefs and things that we are struggling for are very similar. Through this we are celebrating what we have in common.
