Browse our excellent selection of International and American gourmet sturgeon caviar. Sturgeon is a name of the species of fish in the Acipenseridae family. The most known sturgeon are Beluga, Kaluga , Osetra and Sevruga and the American Hackleback. A Sturgeon is a fish with bones, not cartilage and moreover they have no scales. Many of them are very large, up to 15 feet in length and the name sturgeon is historically linked to their roe, the caviar; the female reproductive eggs - an expensive delicacy. Expensive because sturgeons take many years, decades in fact, to reach proper maturity, and until reaching maturity their roe cannot be harvested. Sadly, many sturgeons are on the brink of extinction in their natural habitat, due to pollution and overfishing. Thankfully many important species are now farmed outside their traditional habitat, but in similar circumstances, creating an almost identical product, allowing gourmands the opportunity to still savor this wonderful delightful taste.
