NATIONAL CAVIAR DAY
July 18th celebrates National Caviar Day.
Caviar is known as a seafood delicacy. However, in simple terms, caviar is basically Sturgeon fish eggs. There are several species of Sturgeon fish. As a result, the caviar produced varies in colors based upon the species. Caviar is full of protein and vitamins making the delicacy a healthy meal.
The United States was the leading distributor of caviar around the year 1900 producing over 600 tons a year. However, because of the vast amount of Sturgeon fish killed for the caviar, a ban was put in place to protect the Sturgeon fish from becoming extinct. Thus, resulting in expensive prices of caviar!
Enjoy some caviar and post on social media using #NationalCaviarDay.
The origins of National Caviar Day, an “unofficial” National holiday, is unclear.
