The Bowfin, Amia calva, also called 'choupique' in and around Louisiana, is found throughout the Eastern US in slow-moving backwaters and canals. The Bowfin is not a sturgeon, but is a very old fish as well.
The American Bowfin Caviar Roe consists of small brownish to jet-black glossy pearls. The roe is Malossol (Russian term for lightly salted) and it has a mildly tangy flavor.
This caviar is available in tins and jars of various sizes.... MORE INFORMATION
