What is caviar?

Caviar is the name for the unfertilized fish eggs, also known as roe, of sturgeon fish. These eggs are traditionally served as a delicacy, lightly salted and chilled.

Whether caught from the Caspian Sea or raised in aquaculture farms in Italy, France and Chile, our product is top of the line. We also offer great American options, like the prized Paddlefish, Hackleback and Bowfin roes, from our very own lakes and rivers in the United States. Explore our black caviar, sourced from the finest sturgeon like beluga and other picks.

Many of our caviars for sale are sourced from aquafarms, making them a great sustainable choice – the fish are raised in pristine waters, where their diet and health are closely supervised so you get the same quality fresh roe, but knowing that you’re helping the environment and sustaining fish populations around the world.

Serving and Storing

The delicacy is served chilled, but never frozen, usually over a bowl of ice or a crystal server. Spoon it out with a mother-of-pearl spoon, but never use metal, which will taint the taste. Each serving should be about half an ounce to one ounce, when served the traditional way, say over blini or toast points. You can also serve caviar on hard-boiled quail eggs, boiled potatoes with lemon, or even topping hot dishes like pasta, ravioli, or risotto. For drink pairings, pair it with a classic shot of ice-cold vodka, champagne for extra luxury, or any clear cocktail.

Caviar in Wild

If you want to buy caviar from wild-caught fish, these days you’ll find it more difficult, but wild roe is still available. However, with declining populations of fish around the world due to overfishing, you’ll find more farmed caviar for sale available than true eggs from the Caspian Sea. Caviar prices skyrocketed due to the almost extinction of sturgeon fish, which meant that producers turned to farmed products as an eco-friendlier option and to lower costs. Today, you can order caviar online from fish raised in Italy, Israel, and even Uruguay.

Farm Raised Caviar

Many of our caviars for sale are sourced from aquafarms, making them a great sustainable choice – the fish are raised in pristine waters, where their diet and health are closely supervised so you get the same quality product, but knowing that you’re helping the environment and sustaining fish populations around the world.

Price

Like any other luxury food, the price of caviar will vary according to supply and demand, but one thing is certain, this sought-after gourmet food comes at a price. Real sturgeon fish eggs are expensive because they come from a species of fish that takes extensive breeding and a labor-intense harvesting process. It takes anywhere from 8 to 20 years for a sturgeon fish to mature, and the fish is killed for roe extraction, which means it’s not a renewable resource, as say, chicken eggs. There is not one price, but depending on the type of caviar you are buying, you can shop for it for less than $10 per ounce, while more expensive varieties will go for well over $300.
