    I would try a salt and sugar cure along with your favorite commercial sturgeon scent

    Salt and sugar cure works pretty good you got to be careful not to add too much or you’ll create total soup

    I wouldn’t cure anything for sturgeon. You want to be as natural as possible.
    It’s interesting that the roe in the skein did not work at all for me but the roe that is already all separate worked good. So I’m thinking isn’t that what salmon are letting out and sturgeon coming along and foraging?

    It will be fine as long as you don’t try to unfreeze it to fast. I just took some I had frozen half a year ago out and it came back to life beautifully.
