Fish are in need of a buddy

Friday, March 23, 2012

Even fish need some friends.

Wildlife officials in Wisconsin are looking for volunteers to help guard the sturgeon.

Every spring the giant fish make the journey to their spawning grounds.

The state Department of Natural Resources wants the fish guards to monitor shorelines, to make sure no one tries to net or spear the sturgeon.

But being a fish buddy is no fair weather job, though.

The volunteers face 12-hours shifts, in all sorts of weather.
