Lake Sturgeon Cam

Longtime Aquarium fans have fond memories of touching leathery-skinned Lake Sturgeon while touring the River Journey building. With the arrival of Ridges to Rivers, laying fingers on the armored bodies of these living fossils is an even better experience for guests and sturgeon alike. The newly renamed Sturgeon Bend exhibit is almost three times the size of the previous touch experience and features a more open design. This updated take on a true Aquarium classic allows even more guests to make tactile connections with a fish that can live up to 150 years and that looks much as it did in the age of the dinosaurs.

Did you know that the Tennessee Aquarium Conservation Institute and partners with the Lake Sturgeon Working Group have raised and released over 330,000 Lake Sturgeon back into their native waters since 2000?
