Domestic Caviars and Roes
Mote Marine Siberian Caviar
This Siberian (Acipenser baerii) sturgeon caviar is produced in the country's first facility to cultivate this species for caviar harvest. Mote Caviar operates the nation's largest recirculating research facility for marine and freshwater aquaculture in the United States, and for over a decade has been dedicated to perfecting Earth-friendly techniques and systems to farm raise Siberian sturgeon caviar. Located in Sarasota, Florida, this state-of-the-art farm is focused on developing new fish production techniques despite being 17 miles from any saltwater coastline or large body of fresh water. Here sturgeons are produced on a modern farm that focuses on developing and perfecting their ability to re-use water to grow fish for food in order to minimize their environmental footprint.
Mote Caviar follows strict food safety guidelines and is classified as U.S.-produced, meaning that all the caviar is hatched, raised, harvested and processed in the U.S. These fish are reared to egg-bearing harvest age indoors where all parameters -Â from diet to water quality - are strictly controlled, resulting in caviar with a consistent flavor and quality. Their small-to-medium sized shimmering black pearls have a mild taste and buttery flavor many compare to Caspian Sea Sevruga. Silky in texture, they are mild in saltiness, and finish with a clean, crisp pop.
