Females can take over 10 years to mature and begin producing their precious roe (fish eggs).

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The amount of caviar you need will depend on the amount of people that will be enjoying it. As a rule of thumb, 28 grams (1 ounce) is enough for 1 to 2 people.

Although we do not recommend doing so, you can freeze a sealed jar or tin of caviar for up to one year. The caviar will lose some of its flavor and texture as time goes on.
A sealed jar or tin of caviar should be kept in the fridge around -2 to 0 Celsius (28 to 32 Fahrenheit) to preserve its freshness, flavor, and texture.
All our caviar products are ethically sourced from sustainable farms. We do not sell wild caviar. Wild caviar is illegal in many countries.
Sturgeon caviar comes in a wide range of colors, even from within the space species. For example, Ossetra caviar naturally comes in a range of colors from Golden Brown to Dark Brown so what you receive may differ slightly from what is pictures. If the color is significantly different, for example it is black instead of golden brown, please get in touch with us.
