Size:9oz/255g ______________________________ MarkyÕs CaviarÊ- Sevruga Sturgeon Premium Caviar Sevruga Caviar is one of the highest priced varieties of caviar, eclipsed in cost only by the Beluga and Ossetra varieties. It is harvested from the Sevruga sturgeon (Acipenser stellatus) native to the Black, Azov, Caspian and Aegean Sea basins, but it has been extirpated from the last and it is predicted that the remaining natural population will follow soon due to overfishing. It is considered critically endangered by the IUCN and international trade in this species (including its caviar) is restricted by CITES under Appendix II. Suggested use: Sevruga caviar is a real treat for caviar connoisseurs. Small-medium pearlescent beads have a distinct taste that is only characteristic to this species. Sevruga is most known by more experienced consumers. Because of its high price, Sevruga caviar can be suggested as an aperitif for a small group or an exclusive event for a few select guests. It is an excellent choice for a high end restaurant or wine bar but be aware that its naturally soft egg shell does not follow the typical textural descriptions of high quality caviar.ÊBest served alone on a mother of pearl spoon or a blini.
