Sturgeon

Just wanted to say that sturgeon is my favorite fish, just barely nudging out halibut.

Anyone else like sturgeon?

I haven't had sturgeon, though they farm it nearby, and I know people who fish & release it.
My favourite local white fish are sablefish (black cod) and ling cod.

Halibut's ok but sablefish is so good.

Be interested in tasting sablefish

I hear ling cod is quite good but never had an opportunity to taste either.

Lingcod isn't one of those 'fancy' fish, but I like it. Silky, good texture & flavour. It isn't really cod, either, I think it's greenling.

You're from Seattle? I went there last weekend, just before it got really hot. I love Seattle! We had some very good food, too.

One time had sturgeon in the bar/restaurant, I was 18, also I got extremely drunk that night. Kept gaging all nigh and all I could taste was the sturgeon. I have not touched the thing ever since. Horrible memories. But in all truth it is an awesome fish. Also awesomely expensive. That is if you even can get it.

Sturgeon are highly regarded here, but not as a food fish (unless farmed).

Last year, anglers & the Dept. of Fisheries rescued sturgeon that were trapped by severe flooding of the river. Volunteers picked up sturgeon in slings, put them in their trucks, and drove them back to the main river.

Now my interest is piqued. I can get sustainably caught wild sturgeon. It is expensive: https://montreal.lufa.com/en/marketp...on-frozen-9699

Wow! They're only allowed to catch 350 sturgeon/year. No wonder they're expensive!
