    This is the method i used in washington state for sturgen and salmon eggs that weren't used for bait. Clean the eggs from the skein. Use hot water and a butter knife, work as fast as possible, keeping eggs in the water for the shortest time possible. Drain and rinse with cold water. It is not as easy as it sounds,the eggs tend to break if you are to ruff. remove broken eggs and any skein material still left. Place back in fridge for 1/2 an hour. Then add 1 cup cold water and 1/4 cup salt to each cup of eggs. remove from frig and place eggs in brine for 1/2 hour,remove from brine,rinse,pack and place a small bit of oil of your choice in tin, i use mint tins and packing tape,sounds crude but works great. will last for months,enjoy
