Based on the latest scientific work according to FISHBASE, we had to split the Stenodus leucichthys in two different species: The Stenodus nelma (Sheefish, Inconnu) distributed from Alaska to Siberia and the Stenodus leucichthys (Beloribitsa) from the Ural and Volga River. During this research we discovered a new possible rod & reel record with 27 kg (over 59 lb). This is the largest photographed Sheefish but far below the commercial record of nearly 109 lb!
