Abstract

A key challenge in lake sturgeon restoration is their limited access to historical riverine

modification of instream barriers can restore migratory pathways for sturgeon and other important

among potential projects. The restoration community lacks a transparent method for comparing these

To address this problem, we are undertaking a three?step project with the goal of providing a decision

database to date of the location of dams (n=7,091) and road?stream crossings (n=268,818) in the Great

these potential barriers for fishes. Third, we are currently developing mathematical optimization models

available for a given budget. We will discuss the key factors that drive barrier prioritization, future data

restoration efforts.
