      You should post this over in the fish ID section. I bet Homerdave might have an idea. Looks like Gadidae family to me; some sort of cod.

        Your right I should have done that but I'm pretty sure my friend just figured it out. Pretty sure it's a sturgeon. It has been driving me CRAZY all day!!!

          It may very well be a sturgeon but the sturgeon skulls I've seen have more of an up turned snout. Cool website IOT!

              Very rarely one turns up around here. They tend to run small, and I have taken a couple in a shrimp trawl. They were only between 12"-15". There is one that's probably close to 3' mounted at the Juneau airport that was taken years ago just south of here.

                Jeneau I guess I could understand, but Cordova is still quite a bit further north......

                  Every year a couple are taken during the Copper River gillnet season. They are not local fish. The last one I caught had radio transmitters that had been surgically implanted in it's stomach in San Francisco Bay for a study by the Marine Biology Dept at UC Davis. There was a name and phone # on one of the transmitters so I called them and talked to the head of the Dept about it and he was as amazed as I was how far away it was caught. He said the original study was to determine which areas of the Bay and the Sacramento River were important habitat for sturgeon. They tracked them with a series of receivers around the Bay and up the river. http://biotelemetry.ucdavis.edu/page...nsturgeon1.asp
