Fishermen Charged With Poaching Sturgeon

(Scappoose, OR) -- Several poachers face federal charges after a giant white sturgeon and four other sturgeon were illegally caught in Scappoose Bay earlier this month. Other anglers reported the fishermen in a boat who caught a sturgeon but didn't release it as required by law. Oregon State Police Fish and Wildlife troopers recovered the fish and returned them to the bay. The giant white sturgeon measured more than seven feet long and is likely over 80 years old. Sturgeon can live to be more than 100 years old.
