Default Can You Buy Sturgeon Meat?

Hey there,

I had a sturgeon dinner at a resturant and wondered where they got it? Yesterday we spent $600 for a 46" keeper on a guided trip and thought that would buy alot of sturgeon (- the experience). Any ideas appreciated.

Thanks,

Brandon

I saw it for sale at the Tigard Costco a few weeks ago. It didn't look like any sturgeon meat I have ever seen. Real pale and fatty.

They do raise sturgeon in hatcheries back East. That's probably where it came from.

There is a storage unit on Sandy, near the Chinook landing boat ramp. Just about to the 207th exit. They have a sign that say they sell Sturgeon.

They sell live sturgeon for pond's and aquariums! They are however white sturgeon.

Also the Indians sell it, however it is sturgeon harvested above the dam!

The sturgeon I have seen for sale at Costco looks just like the sturgeon meat in my freezer.

The last stuff I saw was from Canada, advertised as wild.
