Canadian Caviar Farm Breeds Sturgeon Not Seen On Market For 100 Years
Canadian Caviar Farm, Breviro Caviar, has spent the past 15 years breeding Shortnose Breviro Sturgeon, which had nearly been wiped out due to overfishing about 100 years ago.
Now, the sturgeon are producing caviar and are ready for the market. The taste is described as "buttery" and delicate. The Breviro Caviar farm is also one of Canada's only CITES approved facilities.
There is also a video in the article, which I do suggest you watch - Great clips of the farming process and actual extraction of roe from the ovaries.
