Description

Description

Indigenous to the Missouri and Mississippi river areas, American sand sturgeons (also known as hackleback, shovelnose or switchtail) are faster growing than most other species, reaching about 38" at full maturity. Being harvested from the world's smallest sturgeon, this caviar is small and firm with all the characteristics and tastes of the classic wild sturgeon. The pronounced flavor and glistening black eggs with hints of emeralds and gold makes Hackleback our most popular domestic sturgeon caviar. 

The roe is dark and firm with a very mild, subtle flavor. Being the only commercially fished sturgeon in the United States, Hackleback is the last American Wild caviar. A very nice, wild caught U.S. product.

Hand packed and quality checked for color, size, freshness, flavor and texture. View our Policy Page for additional shipping, use, and privacy information.

We all loved the American Hackleback Sturgeon...

We all loved the American Hackleback Sturgeon Caviar . It has just the right amount of brininess without being too strong. We served it with the blinis and creme fraiche as part of our Thanksgiving breakfast. We ordered 7 oz. - but should have ordered more. We will definitely buy this again. Great caviar for a good price.

American Hackleback Sturgeon...

We always order this for special holiday celebrations and it is always as good or better than what friends give us from D’Artagnan and other fine purveyors. Always order the cocktail blinis and creme fraiche, too….perfect!
