Plan 2012 avoids serious impacts to Lake Sturgeon breeding habitat
- If future NBS are much drier than historical conditions, then Lake Superior Regulation Plan 2012 will still be able to avoid infrequent but serious adverse effects on the spawning habitat of lake sturgeon, an endangered species, in the St. Marys River. Under 1977A, adverse effects on fish habitat would be more frequent under drier NBS conditions.
