    Default Monster from the depths of the Fraser River

    A hook baited with salmon meat was enough to tempt a 318-kilogram Jurassic monster from the depths of the Fraser River.



    It's measurements were epic - 318 kilograms, 3.2 metres long and 1.4 metre in girth.
    "Fraser River sturgeon are the largest fresh water fish in the world and they are the second heaviest (behind the beluga sturgeon)," said Atkinson. "They're living dinosaurs from the Jurassic age."
    The fish can live up to 150 years, grow to six metres and weigh more than of 600 kilograms
