Description

Description

Bowfin, known by its Cajun name "Choupique", is even more ancient than sturgeon and similarly has hardly changed over millions of years of existence. This bony fish yields small, dark, slightly red-tinted roe that's a more affordable substitute for sturgeon caviar. It is highly regarded by connoisseurs for its intense earthy and distinctive flavor, with mild tang and hints of spice.

Bowfin is native to Eastern North America, with dense populations in the Mississippi River and surrounding rivers, lakes, gulfs, etc. Like prehistoric sturgeon, they can live in both fresh and salt water. 

Caviar Star Bowfin is caught by partner fishermen in the waters surrounding Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We have worked with our fishermen for over a decade to improve the roe-processing and produce an end product closer to fine sturgeon caviar in quality than other Bowfin caviars on the market. Try it for yourself!

 

Hand packed and quality checked for color, size, freshness, flavor and texture.

Love my...

This is a great way to introduce Caviar to friends who have never had it. I’m guilt free if they don’t like it as it’s not super expensive but tastes great and affords me the opportunity to have it often
