Our Featured Gourmet Sturgeon Caviar
Sevruga Sturgeon, Acipenser stellatus, is one of the three sturgeons (Beluga and Osetra being the other two) that was available from the Caspian and Black Sea. Today this caviar comes from the Sevruga Sturgeon raised in Sturgeon AquaFarms in Florida and is of the same superb quality as the Caspian Caviar used to be. The Sevruga Sturgeon is smaller than the Beluga and the Osetra and so are the pearls of its caviar.
Small slate gray to black pearls.
Malossol (Russian term for lightly salted)
Clear and glossy appearance.
Distinguished smooth, buttery flavor. Aromatic and savory taste. read more...
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.
