Endangered sturgeon find new home at New York Aquarium
The five-foot-long, more than 100-pound fish will be living in the Canyon's Edge habitat in the "Ocean Wonders: Sharks!" exhibit.
These native New Yorkers are back where they belong.
Five endangered Atlantic sturgeon are now on view at the Wildlife Conservation Society’s New York Aquarium, which was recently designated a satellite research facility by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Each of the sturgeon measure more than five feet long and tips the scales at over 100 pounds. They join an awe-inspiring team of sharks, rays and other marine life at the gigantic Canyon’s Edge habitat in the “Ocean Wonders: Sharks!” exhibit.
