Thread: Great Atlantic Sturgeon

    Default Great Atlantic Sturgeon

    Here's a short video on the Great Atlantic Sturgeon I found interesting and thought I'd share with other sailors on the site. I find it amazing they were around at the time of the dinosaurs. Beyond that, the video has some interesting video of the area where I live.

    Caviar comes from the virgin Sturgeon.
    The virgin Sturgeon's a very rare fish.
    The virgin Sturgeon takes no urging,
    and that's why Caviar's a very rare dish.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    I found this the other day on a secluded beach at Carolina Beach State Park. Apparently, it's helpful to report even half a dead sturgeon to the people who track them!

    Rob, Suzanne and I were singing that song as we walked way.

    The shoe is for scale. I wear an 8.

    In the United Kingdom there is a law known as de Prerogativa Regis dating back to the reign of Edward II. The law has decreed that whales, porpoises and sturgeons are royal fish. In other words they belong to the monarch and must be offered to the reigning sovereign upon capture or shortly thereafter.

    I don't think we have laws like that, but I did not claim ownership of the found fish and notified our government's representatives where they could find it. As a reward, they sent me stickers!
