Smoked sturgeon is a delicacy -- about $70/pound in NYC. Sable is a less expensive version.

delicacy can mean either 'rare and expensive' or 'plain nasty' sometimes both.


But a quick search suggests you lot harvested nearly all the sturgeons a while back. hopefully not just for the eggs.

The White Sturgeon which is the one you see in the video is catch and release only in our waters. In fact there are only a few locations where you are allowed to fish for it and that includes the lower and middle sections of the Fraser river.

That said, that fish was big enough to make it on all the newscasts. It's a previously un-caught fish as it was not tagged. Hard to believe as that fish was probably born around 1900.

Yes the Sturgeons were almost wiped out a hundred years ago (for their eggs) and have taken a very long time to bring back.

I had to look that up. Female sturgeons can live to 150! Clearly some of them can be quite wiley.
