U.S. Fish and Wildlife Fishery Biologist Andy Plauck photographs the day's big catch - a wild Pallid Sturgeon. The fish, which is extremely rare, was transported to a hatchery where it will be spawned out. When the three-person Fish and Wildlife Fishery team pulls a Pallid Sturgeon out of their experimental gill nets, the fish is thoroughly documented, measured, and if it is a wild-born adult, possibly transported to a hatchery.
