In the wild the "white sturgeon" is home to the Eastern Pacific Ocean habitating the coast from the Alaska Bay to Monterey, CA, and spawning throughout the Columbia river and Sacramento Delta.

In captivity the "white sturgeon" is fully mature in 7 to 9 years, weighing on average 80 lbs. and 5 to 6 feet in length.
