American hackleback sturgeon caviar is valued for its soft mild and subtle flavor and small velvety black pearl roe grains. Its taste is very similar to Caspian Sea Osetra but roe is smaller in size. Hackleback caviar is produced from wild Scaphiryhnchus platoryhnchus sturgeon which is indigenous to the Missouri and Mississippi River systems. American sturgeon fish are smaller and faster growing than most of the other sturgeon species growing to about 38 inches at maturity.

The average shelf life of American Sturgeon Hackleback caviar varies based on storage conditions such as the ambient temperature and a sterile and uncontaminated container. Unopened caviar in its original container stored (frozen) at 28 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit will maintain its freshness up to about 4 months. To avoid introducing contaminants once opened it should only be picked with a sterile utensil. It should be consumed within several days after opening and kept in the fridge.
How We Ship
In order to maintain freshness we package our products well. Our packaging includes a Styrofoam insulated refrigerator container with ice gel packs, which will keep the caviar cold and fresh for several days. Regions with colder temperature and weather will keep the products fresh for a longer period.
American Hackleback Sturgeon caviar comes in three different containers. When purchasing you have the option to select the weight and container. The available options are listed in the selection field and there is no mix-and-match. The three containers are:
- Glass Jar
- Gold Metal Tin
- Blue Metal Tin
The Blue Tin container dominated the market for a long time and currently it is the most popular and known container, but as everything progresses another type of caviar packaging was introduced, the Gold Tin. Gold Tin container is the best type of packaging since it is vacuum sealed when packaged. Vacuum sealed American Hackleback Sturgeon caviar can stay fresh longer.
Please do not base your purchasing decision solely on the image. We are still working on perfecting our images. Our images have been digitally altered to display texture and store brand. It is a digital representation of the actual product. The product packaging you will receive depends on the container that you chose upon selecting caviar.
