Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Research Proves Midwestern Fish Species Lives Beyond 100 Years

Newswise imageRecent research from NDSU shows that the Bigmouth Buffalo (Ictiobus cyprinellus), a fish native to North America, lives more than eight decades longer than previously thought. The study documents several individual fish more than 100 years of age, with one at 112 years, an age that quadruples all previous age estimates for this species. The Bigmouth Buffalo can now be considered the longest-lived freshwater teleost and the oldest age-validated freshwater fish.
