Sturgeon: Royal Fish since 1324

By the Middle Ages, the majestic #sturgeon had become much more established among the higher echelons of European society. In 1324, the English king Edward II declared #sturgeon to be a "Royal Fish" and only people in the royal court were permitted to eat it. This is a tradition which continues to this day - all wild #sturgeon found within the foreshore of the United Kingdom are still decreed the property of the monarch.
