PRODUCT INFO

The largest freshwater
fish in North America, is an excellent choice for patrons who don’t
like “fishy” tasting seafood. 95% of farm raised Sturgeon in the
United States is White Sturgeon, with 85% of that coming from
California. White Sturgeon have grey fins with a distinctive
cream-colored belly. Sturgeon don’t have scales, rather they have
“armor” called scutes, making their skin
inedible.
