Here in Virginia, the Giant

Here in Virginia, the Giant Sturgeon was thought extinct until some of them started showing up recently in the James River. This species grows to ten feet long and was once known as the "fish that saved Jamestown" because the starving colonists in the first few years here before 1612 had to live on sturgeon along with the corn that they could buy or steal from the Powhatan Nation.
