White Sturgeon Caviar comes from the roe of the White Sturgeon, which actually goes by many names, including Pacific Sturgeon, Oregon Sturgeon, Columbia Sturgeon, Sacramento Sturgeon, and California White Sturgeon. This species of Sturgeon is primarily found along the west coast of North America between the Aleutian Islands and Central California. Despite the name “White Sturgeon”, its body is generally a pale-olive or gray-brown in colour, but its underside is usually a pure, clean white.
Although the White Sturgeon is only the third largest species of sturgeon, it is actually the largest freshwater fish in North America. It can reach a weight of up to 1,798 lbs. and a length of up to 20ft. This species of sturgeon has no scales. Instead, it has large bony “scutes” that cover its long, slender body. As with most species of sturgeon, the White Sturgeon has four barbels near its mouth, which it uses for sensing food.
White Sturgeon Caviar has a medium-large sized grain, and is described as having a delicious, creamy taste. Its colour ranges from dark-brown to grey and light amber.
