Photographer's Note

This one is 6 meters 55 long and was carved from the trunk of poplar by the artist Jean Pierre Feugnet, it sits well on a roundabout at the entrance to St Georges de Didonne on the edge of the Gironde estuary.
This giant sturgeon reminder that we once fished in the waters of the Gironde this fish species for its famous caviar.
Due to scarcity of the species, the fishing has been prohibited since 1982 ... We always produce caviar in the region, but farmed caviar!
