    Did you eat any of the fish? If so, how'd they taste?
    Cool!

    Yes, the fish tasted as good or better than wild ones I've had a chance to try.

    It was great that you helped out with the study and showed the students how to roll.

    I'll be in touch about the next event; next time we'll give you a new UCD hat- you have earned it.

    Thank you,
    Here they come!

    The study only needed the heads, gonads, blood samples and the physical measurements.

    Meat went to any volunteers who wanted it as it wasn't needed for the study. FlyWright didn't take any, however (so don't try to hit him up). The rest of the meat will be used for an end of school year BBQ for the students.

    One thing I learned today was that the size of a 2 year old aquaculture fish is WAY BIGGER than a two year old wild fish in the river/bay. Easy food and good water conditions makes them grow quickly.

    Also, 49er,

    You are correct!

    Sturgeon study and thanks FlyWright!

    We have a long term sturgeon aquaculture study going on at UCD where 50 fish are harvested and studied every 6 months to 1 year. The study is looking at sexual development.

    This is year two of the project and the fish are in the 2-3 foot range and I believe they weighed in at 8 Kg at the most.

    Since we needed to whack so many fish, I thought I would invite sturgeon-fishing aficionado FlyWright to come and show the students and myself how it's done.

    Thanks for volunteering today in the heat, Al! Much appreciated, buddy!

    Lots of slimy bloody work!
