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!
