Caviar comes from the lightly salted eggs of the Sturgeon, a prehistoric fish native to the Caspian Sea. The Beluga is the largest of this variety of fish. It easily lives up to 100 years and produces the most desirable roe with a light buttery taste and subtle briny finish. When the Soviet Union fell, the state’s monopoly ended, and fishing for Sturgeon became a free-for-all that, in a matter of years, landed the Beluga and its delicious roe on the endangered species list. Thanks to a combination of extreme overfishing and trade sanctions made by several countries around the world, it’s now illegal in many countries to buy or sell true wild-caught Sturgeon caviar. In the wake of this calamity the practice of farming Sturgeon has sprung up, and the breeding of certain Sturgeon have created new hybrid varieties that boast the same tantalizing flavored roe with a much faster maturation cycle. Thanks to these innovations we’re once again able to enjoy caviar the way we used to, only this time in a responsible and sustainable manner!
