A San Jose man is under arrest Wednesday, accused of poaching white sturgeon and selling them to at least two restaurants.

California made sturgeon poaching illegal in 2007.

Acting on a tip, Fish and Game agents put the suspect under surveillance along the delta. They say they caught him in the act.

Investigators say they confiscated roughly $1000 worth of the fish.
