Sturgeon have survived the tests of evolutionary and geologic time, but man-made water diversion pipes may be one their most significant threats to date. When unscreened, diversion pipes, which re-direct water from rivers and levees for agriculture, draw in small fishes that may be killed by irrigation pumps or stranded in irrigated channels
