Recent Sturgeon Catch May Be the Largest Fish Ever Recorded From Oneida Lake

Jun 19, 2019

Last week, researchers at the Cornell University Biological Field Station may have set a new mark 
for the largest fish ever recorded from Oneida Lake. A netting survey for lake sturgeon resulted in 
the tagging and release of a 139 pound sturgeon, the largest sturgeon handled since the sturgeon 
netting survey began 17 years ago in 2002, and possibly the largest fish ever documented in Oneida Lake.
