My wife sent me a forwarded email of the huge, ugly fish above, with the explanation below:

“FYI: This Sturgeon is Still alive, just worn out from the fight. They turned him loose (it’s the law in OR.). This Sturgeon was caught on the Willamette River just below Oregon City . It weighed out at over 1,000 lbs and measured out at 11’1″. It was 56″ around the girth and took over 6 and a half hours and 4 dozen beers for the 4 guys taking turns reeling.”

In case you didn’t know a “sturgeon” is an ugly fish. The female sturgeon produces eggs more popularly known as the delicacy, caviar.

When I went to the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory last week and met the wonderful Jim Franks, we talked about the sturgeon fish. He said that a couple of guys at the research lab are doing research on sturgeon, and that the Atlantic Sturgeon is endangered.

That big’un in Oregon fended for himself pretty good, it sounds like…

Anyway, after looking at this ugly sturgeon yesterday, thought I’d show you another one today.
