Rare Sturgeon Caught

Henry V

I know there are a few sturgeon anglers on here this might interest. Besides, I thought this was cool, because this particular sturgeon species does not exist in North America. Finally, the fish is absolutely massive: 1,300+ lbs.

I saw that same episode and I was wondering why the Beluga Sturgeon was not the largest freshwater fish. I have seen many photos of Beluga's that have grown to well over the size of the Mekong Giant Catfish that holds the title as the world's largest freshwater fish.

John, my guess is that Mekong catfish don't migrate to sea, 

but sturgeon do (at least most species).  If you guys want to read a great book

about sturgeon, check out "the philosopher fish." it even has a cameo by bill

murray!
