Video by @jenniferhayesig Meet the dinosaur fish. Thousands  of baby sturgeon, a threatened species in our waters, were released into the St. Lawrence River and its tributaries this week to rebuild struggling populations that were wiped out by overharvest and construction of dams. Sturgeon are called dinosaur fish because they are ancient freshwater fish that swam with ichthyosaurs in Mesozoic waters 230 million years ago. These finger sized lake Sturgeon could live to 100+ years and grow to 7 feet long , the females will not reach sexual maturity for 20+ years. The Sturgeon group of fishes are the largest freshwater fish on the planet. There are 27 species of sturgeon, the largest and most rare is the beluga called  Huso huso that can reach 2500+ pounds and 20+ feet. Sturgeon are one of the most threatened species on earth because of the market and poaching demand for their eggs called caviar. A single 100 yr + female with eggs is worth a million dollars or more on the black market. Many populations in Europe are gone or hanging  by a thread. I have spent a decade+ documenting this population as a part of my graduate studies and I am grateful to see a "Success Story" and regional restoration of this threatened species. . // with @natgeo // #sturgeon #caviar  #baby #threatenedspecies  #stlawrenceriver #gratitude for #moreocean follow @jenniferhayesig 1632040272023374042_472140286

 Sturgeon is the common name for the 27 species of fish belonging to the family Acipenseridae. Their evolution dates back to the Triassic some 245 to 208 million years ago. The family is grouped into four genera: Acipenser, Huso, Scaphirhynchus and Pseudoscaphirhynchus. Four species may now be extinct. Two closely related species, Polyodon spathula (paddlefish) and Psephurus gladius (Chinese paddlefish, possibly extinct) are of the same order, Acipenseriformes, but are in the family Polyodontidae and are not considered to be "true" sturgeons. Both sturgeons and paddlefish have been referred to as "primitive fishes" because their morphological characteristics have remained relatively unchanged since the earliest fossil record. Sturgeons are native to subtropical, temperate and sub-Arctic rivers, lakes and coastlines of Eurasia and North America.

Check elvice_urio's Instagram @natgeo Photo by @DavidDoubilet. A sea turtle hatchling hides from predators in a dense floating canopy of sargassum algae near Cancun Mexico. Sargassum plays a critical role in sea turtle hatchling survival. Sea turtles hatch and swiftly head for the open sea running a gauntlet of hungry land and then sea creatures until the lucky ones find cover and protection in the sargassum weed. These floating forests maybe clump, table or football field sized and some patches stretch for miles like a vast ceiling on the sea but even the smallest is critical nursery habitat for immature and vulnerable sea life that would be quickly devoured in the open blue. // Photographed on @natgeo assignment with @jenniferhayesig for upcoming story on Sargassum:Nurseries in the Sea. // #ocean #seaturtle #baby #sargassumweed #cancun #survival #life #beauty #mexico #moreocean // To see a baby sea turtle searching the sea for a safe nursery follow @daviddoubilet 1631755189685270540_316753956

Sargassum plays a critical role in sea turtle hatchling survival. Sea turtles hatch and swiftly head for the open sea running a gauntlet of hungry land and then sea creatures until the lucky ones find cover and protection in the sargassum weed. These floating forests maybe clump, table or football field sized and some patches stretch for miles like a vast ceiling on the sea but even the smallest is critical nursery habitat for immature and vulnerable sea life that would be quickly devoured in the open blue. // Photographed on @natgeo assignment with @jenniferhayesig for upcoming story on Sargassum:Nurseries in the Sea. // #ocean #seaturtle #baby #sargassumweed #cancun #survival #life #beauty #mexico #moreocean // To see a baby sea turtle searching the sea for a safe nursery follow @daviddoubilet

Check thephotosociety's Instagram Photo by @daviddoubilet A group of mating loggerhead sea turtles rest on the sand bottom near Key Largo, Florida in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. As I took this photo a fourth and fifth male arrived. After a few minutes the mating group rose to the surface as one to breath and returned to the sand. Loggerhead turtle courtship and mating season can last 4-6 weeks and the female can store sperm from many males resulting in multiple paternity. The female will return to her nesting beach and lay a clutch of 100 +\- eggs over a few days of which only a very few will survive. Loggerheads, like all sea turtles are an endangered species struggling against active and passive harvest, consumption and entanglement in marine debris, loss of nesting beaches to development and rising levels.

A very vulnerable baby sea turtle makes its way to the Gulf Stream in desperate search of weed cover to hide in. When sea turtles hatch they crawl across sand through a gauntlet of birds and mammals before they enter the water greeted by an ocean full of hungry predators. A very few lucky  sea turtle hatchlings will survive long enough to find their way to floating rafts of algae called sargassum weed to hide in until they are big enough to fend for themselves. The sargassum canopies are critical to survival of these endangered sea turtles. // On assignment for @natgeo story about the importance of Sargassum weed as critical habitat in the sea. // with @thephotosociety @natgeocreative @the_explorers_club // #ocean #baby #turtle #seaturtle ##gulfstream #vulnerable #endangeredspecies for #moreocean follow @daviddoubilet #LetLive 1631293019989507740_1381644000
