Freshwater Monster of Québec, Canada.

Etymology: Short for the Ashuapmouchouan River, which flows into Lac St.-Jean.

Physical description: Length, 30-100 feet.

Distribution: Lac St.-Jean, Québec.

Significant sightings: In 1978, Marcel Tardif and his wife saw a blackish animal, 50-60 feet long, off Scott Point. The same day, something overturned a canoe paddled by Michel Ver-reault, his wife, and daughter.

Possible explanation: California sea lions (Za-lophus californianus) were released into the lake in 1975, though these only reach 8 feet in length.
