Big Unit Sturgeon Caught and Tagged in British Columbia

A fishing guide in British Columbia caught this big unit, which weighed in at nearly 600 pounds.

The sturgeon - a member of the bony fish family - was estimated at a little over 10 feet long (go ahead and insert any number of phallic jokes.)

According to scientists, the earliest sturgeon fossils date back to about 200 million years ago. It's no surprise then, that Yves Bisson - the guide who caught the fish - estimated that the age of this animal was probably over 100 years old.

Bisson stated that he's interacted with over 22,000 sturgeon (WHAT?!) in his career as a fishing guide. Obviously this is one of those interactions that he won't soon forget.

In the video we can see the sturgeon being tagged, which means it most likely wasn't ever caught before. After catching and tagging the thicc boy, Bisson releases it back into the wild. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, sturgeon are critically endangered.
