Pick your caviar from the following selections:
Paddlefish (Polyodon Spathula) - American Paddlefish, also known as "spoonbill" because of its duckbill-like snout, is a cartilaginous cousin to the Hackleback Sturgeon wild caught in the Mississippi River. Our fine paddlefish roe harvested from the Mississippi and White River systems ranges in color from light green to dark steel gray, and is comparable to Caspian Sea Sevruga in flavor. A fine yet less expensive alternative to sturgeon caviar.
Hackleback Sturgeon (Scaphirhynchus Platorynchus) - Indigenous to the Missouri and Mississippi river areas, American sand sturgeons (also known as hackleback, shovelnose or switchtail) are faster growing than most other species, reaching about 38" at full maturity, and the world's smallest sturgeon. The roe is dark and firm with a very mild, subtle flavor. Being the only commercially fished sturgeon in the United States, Hackleback is the last American Wild caviar. A very nice, wild caught U.S. product.
Royal White Sturgeon (Acipenser Transmontanus) - A wonderfully nutty taste and beautiful color, ranging from deep amber to dark gold. It is lighter in color and slightly bolder in flavor compared to traditional or Classic White Sturgeon Caviar. The North American White Sturgeon is the largest of the American sturgeon and third largest sturgeon in the world and the medium-sized eggs are consistently fresh and very high quality, appreciated for having a clean and delicate flavor with a creamy finish. This product is farm-raised in Sacramento, California in conformity with all international health, animal welfare and environmental regulations.
