When a big fish pops up on the screen, the Wikipedia
Posted On June 20, 2021
is going to be big article A forest in California’s Central Valley has an article on its website for a fish that can grow up to eight feet in length.
Wikipedia describes the fish as a “sea bream” and the website has been growing for nearly three years.
The article was created by local resident and local fish and game hunter and wildlife enthusiast Jim Wahlstrom.
He and his wife, Melissa, created the page to document and educate people on the local fish.
“We’ve gotten quite a few emails, and it’s kind of been growing,” Wahlsten said.
“I’ve gotten about 50 emails in the last three days and they’ve all been from people who’ve seen it and want to know more about it.”
It started out as a fun project and now, the couple has the page up and running.
They’re planning to keep adding more articles to the site, adding photos and video.
“A lot of people just like the fish, and we just wanted to show them a different way to see them,” Wahlsons said.
The couple says the fish is so common, it’s a tourist attraction and they’re not trying to take anything away from the fish.
They hope to eventually add more pictures of the fish to the page.
