Yes, but is anyone buying? That was a misleading-- even deceitful-- ad for
a product. What a surprise for Ebay (not). Nowhere in his comments does
he say what a black bowfin(?) is, the positive reviews he lists are for
salmon, paddlefish and sturgeon roe, and the tin even has a picture of a
sturgeon. He also sells "American hackleback" caviar. I wonder what that
is. Of course it has a picture of a sturgeon, too.
