A new effort is being made in the James River to help save an endangered and prehistoric fish.

The stones are expected to create a 70-foot by 300-foot by 2-foot high rocky river bed, an ideal spawning location for the Atlantic sturgeon . The species spends most of their adult lives in the ocean but return to their home river to spawn in both the fall and spring. Their long life span makes them slow to reproduce.
