North Dakota State University researcher (and Oak Grove Alum) Alec Lackmann and some of his colleagues recently published a paper in an international nature research journal about this native Minnesota freshwater fish, the Bigmouth Buffalo. One of these fish that was taken from Crystal Lake in Otter Tail County was verified to be 112 years old, making it the oldest age-validated freshwater fish ever discovered.
