Because every fish has its tale.

How long do fish live?

I often wonder how long fish live in a natural environment. That is to say their life was not cut short by habitat, disease or one of us anglers cooking them for dinner! Here are a few species life expectancies;

Rainbow Trout - 11 years

German Browns - 12 years

Golden Trout - 9 years

Bullhead Catfish - 25 years

Bass (large or smallmouth) 10 years

Blue-fin Tuna - 20 years

Yellow-fin Tuna - 15 years

Rock Cod - 100+ years

Piranha - 10 years

Goldfish - 10-35 years

Now you know!

About a month ago they caught a rock cod that was close to 125 years old in Alaska. I talked to my buddy at the docks and he said the ones in California can also be that old. In some of the deeper water of course (not at our fishing grounds) The one they caught is Alaska was no that big (25lbs) but the barnicles and other crustacians (sp) were over 50 years old. No common but possible. The ones we catch on an average fishing drip are between 3-7 years old depending on how the current/food source has been. I only make up how big my fish are but not the facts about fish
