For $25, you can join the Toledo Zoo in releasing into the Maumee River a fish that hasn’t swum those waters in over a century.
The goal is to return lake sturgeon to the river in hopes they will once again spawn there.
People who buy a sponsorship in person can release a fish with buckets and/or nets. Each sturgeon will be tagged with a microchip so that it can be permanently identified, according to Kent Bekker, the zoo’s conservation and research director.
