Sturgeon are one of the oldest fish species in the world, evolving more than 250 million years ago

These fish, now more known for the caviar that they produce, have some of the most delicious fillets of meat that have been served. Due to this reputation, this has led to a depletion in Wild product.

Supreme Lobster carries Farm Raised Sturgeon from California. We work with some of the best farms that use a controlled environment which ensures that the fish are being raised in the best conditions.

Farm Raised

Sturgeon farmed worldwide in recirculating aquaculture or land-based flow-through systems is a "Best Choice." These systems often have less effluent, disease, escapes and habitat impacts than other aquaculture systems.


California White Sturgeon is a firm, dense fleshed fish and often compared to having similar flavor & textural characteristics of milk fed veal.

Because of this similarity to meat and chicken, it is an excellent menu option for diners who do not like "fishy" tasting seafood selections. Smoked sturgeon is also an exquisite option.

In the humble opinion of this fishmonger, these exquisite animals are a perfect menu item with a firm dense flesh, outstanding pockets of golden colored fat & incredible overall flavor.
