American Made Caviar from Caspian Sea Sturgeon
Sturgeon species native to America produce a variety of caviars. However, the highest quality caviars are known to come from sturgeon native to the Caspian Sea. Not to worry! Marshallberg Farm (North Carolina) raises Russian sturgeon to produce superior quality American made caviar. Buying caviar produced in the U.S.A. ensures maximum freshness and purity. All caviar from Caspian Sea sturgeon is currently farmed. China produces more than 80% of Caspian Sea caviars consumed in the USA. Imported caviars contain borax as a preservative. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned borax as a food additive. In addition, imports are much older than Marshallberg Farm, and therefore may taste fishy and old.
American Sturgeon Caviar
Sturgeon species native to the U.S. include White Sturgeon, Atlantic Sturgeon and Lake Sturgeon. Caviar from these species should be much less expensive than roe from Caspian Sea sturgeon. Osetra caviar is produced exclusively by Russian Sturgeon. Unlike American Sturgeon, all Caspian sturgeon are critically endangered. Farming is the only way to battle the black market and keep these extraordinary species alive. Marshallberg Farm is the only truly sustainable farm for Osetra, using a complete indoor system for maximum water purity and environmental safety.
