John Leyburn started this petition to Bass Pro Shop and

Bass Pro's new store in Tsawwassen, British Columbia, Canada. which is located on First Nations Land has added a 5 foot White Sturgeon to their "Aquarium" in the store, these creatures can live upto 150 years, it is not right that they should keep it captive. In British Columbia, Sturgeon fishing is strictly "Catch and Release" the fish are tagged, measured and released to the wild, incredible data is kept and analysed for the survival of the species.  Bass Pro has no right to retain this species. I call for the release of this creature immediatley. They are running a contest to name it, have we not had enough of Tilicum, Skana and the abuse they suffered in captivity.  I know we are talking Mammal vs Fish but these creatures (Sturgeon) live long past our life expectancy. Protect them don't display them.
