What is Caviar
True caviar is salted roe that only comes from the sturgeon family, a prehistoric fish located in the Northern hemisphere anywhere from North America to China. The three most notable sturgeon species are Beluga, Ossetra, and Sevruga sturgeons. Please note that roe from any other fish -- including pike, paddlefish, salmon and alike is not technically caviar.
