Shortnose Sturgeon Caviar from Canada

The North Shore News, has a short article about Breviro Caviar, a Canadian company sourcing Shortnose sturgeon from Canada's Bay of Fundy.

Shortnose sturgeon is exceedingly rare - with Breviro Caviar being the sole company to produce caviar from the endangered species. Production is extremely limited, and not always available. We have yet to try this type of sturgeon but look forward to sampling it in the future.

Shortnose sturgeon (acipenser brevirostrum) is only found in the Canadian Saint John River system - originating in the U.S. (Maine) and extending through New Brunswick until the Bay of Fundy. Shortnose strugeon can grow to over a meter in length and can live for over 50 years. Fossil evidence dates the earliest record of Shortnose sturgeon to over 200 million years ago.

As you can see from the picture, it is definitely one prehistoric sturgeon!
