Albino Sturgeon on the Fraser River

Rare Albino Sturgeon on the Fraser River with Sturgeon Slayers Guiding Company.

Rare Albino Sturgeon on the Fraser River with Sturgeon Slayers Guiding Company.

Check this Albino Sturgeon from today’s trip. They are very rare to see and actually can’t remember last time we had an albino dino. Check out the yellow pale head and yellow scutes. The picture doesn’t really show the color as crazy as it was.

This monster was also Untagged, measuring 8’4 1/2 fork length. It’s always great to add more fish into the Tagging Program. When they are big and albino, even better.

Thank you gentlemen for a great day on the River. O, and they got a bigger fish than this an hour later!

Not all that often we get to see tiny babies.

We use gear that is aimed towards Dino’s on the larger scale. Every once in a while, this happens! Its very exciting.

The picture actually make him/her look bigger than was in reality.

Of course he/she was untagged so we tagged, recorded, and release. For any dino’s that we get to tag, clients have the opportunity to adopt the Sturgeon for $100. You will receive an email update if/when they are caught again.

Money goes towards the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society program to help keep the tagging program going.

We are proud and honored to announce President of Sturgeon Slayers, Kevin Estrada has been brought on as a Director for the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society.

For those of you who know Kevin know he has deep connection with the most amazing species on the planet. At over 250 million years old they have remained nearly unchanged.

Their spawning habits, slow growth rate and the age they live till is something so unique and magnificent. Kevin is excited to continue on his protection of Sturgeon on another level.

“Thank you to the board for bringing me on and valuing my experience and dedication to the fishery. ”

DID YOU KNOW?

– Have survived two ice-ages; are living in the Fraser River.

– Survive in both fresh and salt water.

– Have captured the imagination of hundreds of students and future ‘sturgeon stewards’, through the HSBC Fraser River Sturgeon Education Program grades 4-7.

– Rely on help from the sport fishing, recreational fishery, First Nations, government and community leaders, environmentalists, conservation experts and the public community.

Over the last decade, we the Society have made great progress identifying and addressing issues that affect the recovery of white sturgeon in the Fraser River watershed using critical data collected through our award-winning, volunteer-driven monitoring and assessment program. We have developed a curriculum based education program and public awareness initiatives to promote community understanding of white sturgeon.

As an environmental stewardship and research organization, the Society brings together a diverse community of stakeholders – leaders, all areas of government and First Nations, commercial and recreational fishing sectors, research and education – to work together and make a difference for Fraser River white sturgeon. Priority areas include: mortality, habitat erosion, technology and recruitment of juvenile stocks.

Inspired by Honourary Chair Rick Hansen, we deploy our resources and talents towards conserving and protecting Fraser River white sturgeon and their habitat. This is addressed through: the development and implementation of stewardship activities, education and public awareness initiatives; conducting research and communicating the results; and professionally addressing key issues facing sturgeon with appropriate actions.

For those of you who know me, your well aware that I am very involved with the political side of our fisheries.

Part of my Director duties for the Fraser Valley Angling Guides Association is to go to many high level meetings involving First Nations, Government and user groups. It’s a thankless job but imperative to staying knowledgeable and giving input for recommendations on fisheries. In many cases, fighting for opportunity.

It always make me laugh when I hear people complain about one issue or another but they do nothing about it. I can say over the last 9 years, I can count on one hand the guys who have been going to these high level meetings, dedicating significant time to fight for not only rec anglers but other guiding companies, that we actually are competing against.

Your welcome!

Recently, a lobby group like nothing before has been formed to fight for the recreational angler. This is the most important group I’ve been apart of because we have been losing our opportunity to fish the Fraser as rec anglers have seen significant decrease over the years set by DFO.

See HERE for article in the Chilliwack Progress.

Anyone who fishes the Fraser, makes a living off the fisheries, from guides, hotels to gas stations and so on, you need to pay attention to this ongoing issue. Our heritage as many of you know, is slipping away.

We will be seeking donations to keep this group together and fighting. If your interested in helping please email fraser.river.sf.alliance@gmail.com

Thank you and Stay tuned.
