Caviar is a seafood delicacy of Sturgeon fish eggs full of proteins and vitamins. The United States was the largest producer of caviar up until 1900 when a ban was enforced to reduce over harvesting of Sturgeon fish. The population of Sturgeon never did quite reach pre-ban levels, which contributes to caviar’s elite status. The fish eggs are difficult to harvest as the fish take a long time to reach breeding age and need specific conditions to do it well. Depending on the species of Sturgeon, the eggs can be different colours and have varying flavours. There are even cheaper and vegan alternatives these days!
