Manitoba’s Biggest Sturgeon Monument

This monument in Dominion City (Municipality of Emerson-Franklin) is an original size reproduction of Manitoba’s biggest sturgeon, weighing 406 pounds, measuring 15½ feet long, aged at 150 years, a female full of eggs, that was caught in the Roseau River east of Dominion City by Sandy Waddell on 27 October 1903. Hauled home in a seven-foot democrat by a team of horses, five feet of this monster fish still trailed on the ground. It is located beside the First Railway Monument.
