112-year-old Fish


A fish collected by a North Dakota State graduate student from a Minnesota lake has been verified as the oldest freshwater fish ever taken.

Radiocarbon dating shows a Bigmouth Buffalo fish taken from Crystal Lake near Pelican Rapids, Minnesota, last summer was 112.
It was one of five the student found, that was more than 100 years old.
