More About Wild Caviar
Sourced from unspoiled waters this encapsulates the essence of nature's bounty, carefully chosen from thriving ecosystems. Opting for reputably sourced varieties guarantees rich flavors and supports sustainable fishing practices and the preservation of aquatic environments.
For the past 20 years, we’ve been used to sourcing our caviar from environmentally conscious aquafarms, as a response to dwindling imports caused by over-fishing, and the threat to wild sturgeon populations, especially Beluga. However, certain varieties still stem from the wild – and right here in the United States.
Benefits of Wild Caviar
While farmed has its merits, including year-round availability and controlled production, wild caviar offers a richer connection to the natural world, supporting sustainable fishing practices and aligning with the principles of ecological balance.
The flavors of wild caviar are shaped by the diverse and pristine waters in which the fish thrive, resulting in a unique and authentic taste. Additionally, it tends to have a higher nutritional content, including essential omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, due to the natural diets of the fish. It also carries a certain allure of authenticity and rarity, as it is limited by the availability of wild fish populations.

Our selection includes our best-selling American paddlefish, which is sourced from the waters of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. These majestic waterways, winding through the heartland of the United States, provide the ideal habitat for the paddlefish. This is one of our most popular in store, with a taste that’s refined and smooth, often compared to the Caspian Sea sturgeon varieties like Iranian and Russian caviars.
Another of our choices is the Hackleback, a gem of the American waters, which comes from the resilient Hackleback sturgeon, sourced from the rivers and tributaries of the Midwest and Southern United States, particularly the Mississippi, Missouri, and Arkansas rivers. Hackleback caviar boasts a distinct flavor profile that combines rich nuttiness with subtle earthy undertones. Its small, glossy black eggs create a pleasingly firm texture that delivers a satisfying pop on the palate.
Wild salmon caviar is also an excellent choice for those looking for the best wild caviar on the market. Our salmon roe comes from Alaskan salmon, caught in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic, and delivers beautiful bright eggs with a flavorful fresh taste.
