“The delicacy of the ages”

Caviar - is a delicacy consisting of processed, salted, non-fertilized sturgeon roe.

Traditionally, the designation “caviar” was only used for sturgeon roe obtained from wild sturgeon species living in the Caspian and Black Seas: Beluga, Osetra (Russian Sturgeon & Persian Sturgeon) and Sevruga, so called the “True Sturgeons”. Depending on a country’s national laws, the word “caviar” can also be used to describe the roe of other sturgeon species and non-sturgeon fish, such as salmon, steelhead, trout, lumpfish and whitefish.

According to the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization, roe from any fish not belonging to the order of Acipenseriformes are not caviar, but caviar substitutes. This position was also adopted by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), the World Wide Fund for Nature, the United States Customs Service and the Republic of France. However, if the name of the fish is identified, the word “caviar” can be used. For example: “Salmon Caviar”, ‘Bowfin Caviar”, “Lumpfish Caviar”, “Trout Caviar” etc.

Today, Caviar is marketed worldwide as a delicacy and is consumed with hors d’oeuvres, as a garnish or an appetizer during the special events, weddings and cocktail receptions. Caviar is also a part of the menu in many five star restaurants, hotels and cruise ships.
