Sterlet sturgeon caviar has small grain, a distinct gun-metal grey color, and an assertive taste - an intense, briny finish, unique to Russian-style caviar. This unique Sturgeon Caviar is similar to Sevruga, and makes an acceptable substitute.
The sterlet is a relatively small sized sturgeon from Eurasia, native to large rivers that flow into the Black Sea, Azov Sea, and Caspian Sea, as well as rivers in Siberia as far east as Yenisei. This sustainable grey caviar comes from fish farmed in Germany under closely monitored conditions to replicate its natural habitat.
FARMED in Germany.
