Fish tale - Around the Arch
September 2013 Issue
In an unusual move, California white sturgeon used in a study at the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources were donated to the Atlanta Community Food Bank and the Tennessee Aquarium once the research was complete. Almost a ton of the fish were taken to Inland Seafood to be processed for distribution by the food bank. Three of the fish will be on display in the River Giants exhibit at the aquarium. Typically fish used in research studies are disposed of in a landfill, but since these fish were only used to test their swimming ability, their quality was unaffected. Associate Professor Doug Peterson said putting the fish to good use was a priority of his, as well as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which funded the research. The Atlanta-based Inland Seafood also distributes UGA Premium Siberian Sturgeon Caviar, which was developed by Peterson in another project at Warnell’s Cohutta Fisheries Center.
