Photo Gallery: Fish: White Sturgeon
White sturgeon have been an integral part of fisheries research and development at PAS. Mr. Vaught was involved in the development of the first domestic white sturgeon brood stock. Together with researchers for the University of California at Davis, Mr. Vaught and other growers cooperated to move the culture of white sturgeon from an R and D species to full production in less than 8 years. PAS now provides fingerling sturgeon to other growers and provides fish to recreational lakes.
