Head of Sturgeon

Back to Search Results

Head of a sucker mouthed Gulf sturgeon caught in a net for research that did not survive. The prehistoric fish, a threatened species, migrate from the Gulf of Mexico to the Suwannee River in the spring for spawning and remain there all summer. <br />
From the fossil record, sturgeons have been traced back 200 million years. <br />
Sturgeons make their presence known by jumping six feet out of the water on summer evenings. With adults reaching eight feet long and 200 pounds, they make quite a splash.
