Unfertilized sturgeon roe is what is called caviar. Caviar therefore comes from sturgeon, a prehistoric fish that, according to scientists, is more than 250 million years old – 100 times older than human beings. Its skeleton is made up of cartilage and bone; It has neither spines nor scales nor teeth and its mouth is retractable.
