Looking for sturgeon - January 2017

Article text
.




































There are a few sturgeon to be found in various British locations.

This one was photographed in Jackdaw quarry, Capernwray, in Lancashire which is a flooded former quarry now used as a popular dive site. It was an impressively large fish.

Often described as an ancient species, sturgeon have remain largely unchanged for millions of years. There are a few different species, with this one is likely to have been released from from a garden pond - perhaps having outgrown its former home. Interesting to see that they are able to survive, feeding on the muddy silt bottom.
