The sturgeon’s evolution dates back to the Triassic period between 208 and 245 million years ago,  and their morphology has remained relatively unchanged, essentially making them living fossils.

For centuries, sturgeon have been considered royal fish by the British, French and Tsar monarchies. Any fish caught within their realms were considered the property of the respective monarch.
