UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will be releasing over 11-hundred young sturgeon into Lake Michigan today.

The sturgeon will be released at Lakeshore State Park on the harbor. A spokesperson for D-N-R says each fish received an identification tag under the skin, used to track them through the remainder of each one’s life. That could be a long time, since sturgeon can live over 100-years-old.
