Big Fish Story!

Rex  Springston from the RTD writes about a seven foot sturgeon:

Experts pulled the 200-pound, bone-plated fish from the James River last month near Newport News. Full of eggs, it was almost ready to spawn.

No one has documented a ready-to-spawn sturgeon in the James in decades.

“This is actually a pretty historic event,” said Anne Wright, Virginia Commonwealth University’s coordinator of environmental outreach.

After installing a transmitter, experts will follow the big fish and see where she goes to lay her eggs.
