Absolutely. That's what I've been thinking all along. Someone buy it and
send me a little fin clip. I bet the DNA disagrees with the ad.

I'm betting this is a more common captive breed white, green, or lake
sturgeon someone is trying to pass off as exotic to get a huge price from
some unsuspecting fish collector. If you look-in-the picture the fish is
almost perfect with no torn fins or other flaws. a fish caught in the wild
and transported from China would surely not be so perfect.
