NOAA Photo Library Image - post0085

Greetings from the Alaska Fisheries Science Center (AFSC). Staff with one of the largest Shortraker Rockfish ever seen. Caught in the Bering Sea in the 2007 winter and donated to AFSC for research the fish weighed 62 pounds, was 112 cm in length, and study of otoliths (ear bones) the fish was determined to be 90 to 115 years old, having lived through half of NOAA with never having been caught.
