The Amur or Japanese Sturgeon makes for a relatively unknown but unbelievable tasting caviar. This 100% Acipenser Schrenckii caviar is not commonly farmed in its true form despite having characteristics similar to roe from popular Russian Sturgeon species. When it is sold to the public it is usually labeled as Osetra caviar, as even caviar experts have a difficult time discerning the looks and taste one from the other.
In the wild, Acipenser schrenckii has only ever been seen in the Amur River basins that flow through Russia and China, giving it the more commonly used Amur Sturgeon name. However, others know it as the Japanese Sturgeon because the species is believed to travel to and originate from the Sea of Japan. Today it is farmed in its native home of Northern Mountainous China, near the Russian border. This large sturgeon produces plump, delicious eggs that resemble fine Osetra and Kaluga in taste and appearance. Glossy eggs with buttery notes and a firm creamy texture are on par with the finest luxurious caviars.
