Delaware Riverkeeper Network

With one recent survey showing the number of adult breeding Atlantic Sturgeon in the Delaware River dipping to about 90 fish, there are concerns the species could disappear from the waterway. The Army Corps of Engineers shipping channel deepening project and the potential of shale gas drilling in the upper watershed will put even more pressure on the Atlantic Sturgeon. The Delaware Riverkeeper Network is criticizing federal officials for not doing enough to protect this endangered species.
