Sturgeon are ancient, cartilaginous skeleton fish from a fish family more than 60 million years old. The majority of them are anadromous; a certain portion of their life is spent at sea or in large bodies of fresh water from which they run up freshwater streams to spawn. They tend to be bottom feeders, consuming insect larvae, small fish and occasionally fish-related carrion. In rivers that support salmon populations, sturgeon will forage on roe, as well as the decaying salmon remains from the deceased breeders. June 2012 ... Sturgeon
