So, is all the "American" caviar we hear about from non-native farmed
fish? I thought it was from "farmed" paddlefish and "farmed" native
sturgeon. I do know that some California markets were recently found
guilty of marketing caviar from wild-caught native white sturgeon,
which is protected. For that matter, from what I have been told by the
aquaculture people here-in-my university, paddlefish are not raised
through their entire life cycle in farms. Before I say more, I better
get some more information, though. The Langston people have dropped
paddlefish work. I think that University of Oklahoma and Kentucky
State University are doing a lot with the species.
