Huge, jumping fish active on Suwannee River

Published 7/16/2008
The sturgeon that have been spotted jumping in the river are about four feet long and weigh about 40 pounds.

Sturgeon migrated to the Suwannee River in the spring to spawn. In the fall, they’ll migrate back to the Gulf.

The Suwannee River holds the largest viable population of sturgeon -- there are about 6,500 to 7,500 sturgeon in the 60-mile stretch of the river.
