Hi there!

I don´t know if this is supposed to be off-topic, in case it should go toanother forum, sorry for that.

I´m German and my English sucks. In most cases I´ve managed to find keywords using the 34 words I know from school *lol* or from Thesaurus.com, but in some cases I just fail.

So do I now as I uploaded an image of a fish, which is in German called "Stör". This is an image of it I found on the web:
stoer1


Of course the translation site I know is wrong, calling the fish "disturb" *LMAO*

Can anyone give me the name of that fish, and maybe some more keywords regarding his "thingies under his mouth and his hard skin"? That would be great.

Thanks!

How about this link:

Fish names

I scanned it and there were sooooo many that it made my little eyes hurt! Although I didnt see the exact spelling I think Sturgeon was the closest ?!

Frontline seems to have nailed it - a green sturgeon, I think.

Wie geht's Kickers?

FLM ist richtig... In Englisch, ist Stör 'sturgeon'. Mein Deutsch/Englisch Wörterbuch hat es drinnen. Schön Tag noch!

Thanks guys!
Nice Fishionary btw.

@TimothyBall
Danke gut, und selbst?
Das mit den Keywords ist teilweise ganz schön hart, ich glaub ich muss mir auch mal ein gescheites "Offline"-Wörterbuch zulegen

Schöne Grüße zurück nach Köln!

Yup, that looks like a sturgeon. You could call him Steve.

The thingies under it's snout are barbels used for finding food. It is a bottom feeder and basically vacuums the bottom when it is chow time.

Kickers, your English is better than some native-speaking college students I know ...

Hey, thanks guys for your help.

@kickstand
Wow
Writing is a bit easier for me, when it comes to speaking (I´ve got an American bank as a customer at work) including technical explanations and stuff it´s getting below zero...
