B.C.'s ancient 'river dinosaurs' face uncertain future as population dwindles

Sturgeon fishing is more than just a sport, its cultural significance is deep in the province of B.C. The Weather Network's Mia Gordon takes a look at the important history of sturgeon and the dangers facing them in the future.

Sturgeons are known as the 'dinosaurs of the rivers'. They have been around for more than 200 million years, with the sturgeons of the Fraser River being some of the last wild sturgeons left in the world.

But there is more to these aquatic creatures than some people may know. The Weather Network's Mia Gordon examines the cultural significance of these fish and what organizations are doing to protect them for another 200 million years.
