#210 European Sea Sturgeon

Critically Endangered

Around the World in 80 Days - Day 2

Today we move into France. These are the largest migratory fish in French waters. They are also known as the Atlantic Sturgeon. They migrate up rivers to spawn, but otherwise live along some of the European coasts in the Atlantic Ocean. While they used to be found in several, they now only spawn in the Garonne river basin anymore. There have been attempts to reintroduce them to other rivers, and in 2012 and 2015 some were released into the Rhine. I have no idea of they were successful, but hopefully. They can live to be 100 years old and up to 20 feet long.


So, what are some of your favourite books? I'm sure some of you love "Around the World in 80 Days" and not just the movie. I have a ton of favourite books. I tend to be very old fashioned in my taste of movies and books. I love: Les Miserables, Count of Monte Cristo, pretty much anything by Oscar Wilde, Dickens, James Heriott, Rex Stout, and Terry Pratchett, I enjoy Shakespeare too. I will say, one of my favourite Dickens' books is "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" but it is also probably my least favourite. I do not like secrets, and if you haven't read this I'm warning you about the fact that Dickens died before he finished writing the book. We never find out who did it. I am not sure I can ever bring myself to read it again. I was so into it and absolutely loving reading it, then abruptly the story was over but not solved. Hated that aspect of it. Right now I'm reading an Agatha Christie "Hercule Poirot" book. I think I'm going to re-read "Around the World in 80 Days" though too, just because why not?
