The Sturgeon has been maintaining its features from time immemorial. The fossils that have been found are identical to contemporary fish.
It comes from the big rivers of Siberia and Russia and from the Arctic Sea; however, it does not disdain temperate or even hot waters. It has been farmed also in Italy for some decades now.
The Sturgeon lives on the bottom of the river and, thanks to its flat belly, "sounds" it with its four barbels looking for small fish and crustaceans. It has no teeth: its rigid jaw contributes to chewing.
This breed can reach the two meters of length and grow over three hundred kilos. With its eggs, the famous caviar is prepared.
