Online Ordering and Shipping. Ship Wild Sturgeon to your front door. Order wild sturgeon fillet by phone. Have Smoked or Canned Sturgeon shipped. The Columbia River Sturgeon is by far the healthiest Sturgeon stock in North America and possibly the world. Strict regulations keep hundreds of thousands of Sturgeon thriving in the Columbia. Once they are over 54 inches in length (about 10 years old) they are not allowed to be kept by fishermen. Say no to farm raised Sturgeon.

Is Really Fresh Sturgeon The Best?
No. Sturgeon is an exception to the
“fresher the better” rule. Unlike
other fish, it is preferable to wait and eat
Sturgeon at least two days after it is caught.
When Sturgeon die they go into rigor, and the
fibers in the fillets tense up. It takes 48 hours for
the fibers to loosen so that the fillet is tender and
has the proper texture and flavor when cooked.
We sell Columbia River Sturgeon that has been
caught in the same day, but always recommend
waiting before preparing it. If your heart is set on
eating it fresh caught, deep frying can prevent it
from becoming rubbery.
Columbia River Sturgeon is one of the many products sold year-round at our Seafood Market
