Kootenai River White Sturgeon

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on December 18, 2009 by ElCapitan

The Kootenai River White Sturgeon is North America’s largest freshwater fish, capable of reach 19 feet in length and 1000 lbs. This monstrous beast has been around since the dinosaurs, but is now in danger of becoming extinct, as less than 500 still populate the Kootenia River in Idaho, Montana, and British Columbia . The White Sturgeon’s mating patterns have been disrupted by a dam that has changed the flow of water that has caused the fish to swim upriver and spawn. Attempts to recreate water flows at the site of the Libby Dam in Montana have been unsuccessful, and the fish may become extinct within 10 years if no fix is found.

The Captain is rooting for you, White Sturgeon.


Looking for great sushi?

CaptainBlogBeard has been drowned in schoolwork for awhile, but I haven’t walked the plank yet. So it’s time for another piece of buried treasure from your favorite deep sea blogger.

I recently ate sushi for the first time when some friends and I set anchor at a little place called Moshi (2152 East Main Street, Bexley, OH). It was amazing. For anyone who’s scared of eating slimy and possibly raw fish, now is the time to fight through those fears and try some of Moshi’s delicious treats. The sushi panini were these bite-sized fish sandwiches and were quite good. My favorite, however, was the sushi roll topped with scallops in a delectable sauce (I forget what they were called). Their deliciousness blew my mind.

Moshi is awesome, bottom line.

Check out this guy, the mola mola, the world’s largest bony fish. It can grow up to a length of 14 feet with a weight of 4000 lbs.

He should get some exercise and lay off the heavy snacking.
