Karaburun Caviar is a variety of Iranian Ossetra Caviar which boasts a nutty, creamy roe. The flavor can only be described as a perfect balance of salt and butter undertones. The texture is silky yet separate eggs hold together well in a mass.
Karaburun refers to the particular sturgeon (acipenser persicus) which is native to the southern Caspian Sea, and is mainly processed by Iranian fisheries. Karaburun caviar is distinct in that it is one of the only remaining wild sturgeon that is not considered an endangered species because of the efforts put forth by the Iranian Ministry of Fisheries.
Efforts to insure sustainability of Karaburun Caviar include the raising of millions of young sturgeon in a controlled environment before releasing the fingerlings into the Caspian Sea. Once the sturgeon have matured, they are caught and delicately harvested by the same fisheries that released them into wild. As a result, Karaburun Caviar has become one of the most sought after caviars in the world as it is truly the only proper Beluga substitute.
