Facts about Freshwater fishes !

Perhaps the biggest fish is not the largest species of fish. Three biologists were required last month in Michigan to bring a 240-livre (109 kilos) fish out of the Detroit River. Caught up and released by the Alpena Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office, the almost 7-foot (2.1 mt) “monster’s sturgeon could be over 100 years old. This is a powerful catch, but is it the world’s largest freshwater fish? The Detroit River fish are a lake sturgeon, and, while one of the largest fish ever collected in the U.S., much larger fish are swimming in rivers around the world. There are many different fishes. The largest freshwater fish on the earth is the beluga sturgeon (huso), which lives in the Black, Azov, and Caspian seas between Europe and Asia and feeds them on the rivers. Beluga sturgeon can weigh up to 2.2 tons (2,000 kg) or two metric tons, as set out in a Pan-European Action Plan for Sturgeons published by the World Sturgeon Conservation Society and the World Wildlife Fund. The maximum length may exceed 26 feet (8 m) or around four-time as a King Matratze. As you grow up, belugas are the highest food chain in the international nature conservation union. They are eating fish such as roach and carp, waterfowl, and even seals (IUCN). Beluga may live for over 100 years, like sturgeons from the lake, which provides them time to grow. Phaedra Doukakis, an NOAA (National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration) fisheries policy analysis officer, told Live Science: “Then if you live an extended period, you have plenty of time to eat. Sturgeon has been around the dinosaurs for around 250 million years. Beluga is the largest of today’s 27 species of sturgeon and paddlefish. It is hard to say precisely why belugas grow so enormous, in addition to their extended lives. The reproductive success of large sturgeons was probably higher, perhaps as women could generate more eggs than smaller female fish.
