AQUASCO - Mirant Corp. makes electricity at its Chalk Point Generating Station. And in a small building dwarfed by the cooling towers and smokestacks, Mirant makes fish. For more than 15 years, striped bass, perch and shad have made the successful swim from the round hatchery tanks to the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. The latest Mirant offspring are still years from being ready for prime time, though at 4 feet long and 40 pounds, they hardly seem like babies. But if these fish and others in future generations can make it through their teens to their grown-up years, the Chesapeake could be welcoming back another member of the family.

An initial effort to breed a rare Atlantic sturgeon caught in the Chesapeake Bay has fallen short, but scientists leading the effort promise not to give up. Researchers at the Horn Point laboratory of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science have been holding a 7 1/2 -foot-long, 170-pound female sturgeon in a tank since the giant was caught by a waterman April 29 near Tilghman Island. The catch marked the first time that a sturgeon with eggs was found in the bay in more than three decades.
