Watch Out for Jumping Fish
Sturgeon, which can grow
to more than 8 feet long and weigh up to 200 pounds, migrate into the
Suwannee River during March and April.
Officials say boaters
should reduce their speed along the river, which will give them more
time to react if they do encounter a jumping sturgeon.
unknown why sturgeon leap out of the water; last year, a 4-year-old
boy's arm was broken and his father was cut by one of the jumping fish.
