    It may not be as lumpfish is a Northern fish - lumpfish caviar is known as the 'Caviar of the North' found in the Arctic, North Atlantic and North Pacific oceans.

    Wow. I never knew there was more than one kind of caviar.
    Once again proving that CookingBites can teach us inexperience cooks (never been outside the USA) about cooking and the great world of ingredients.

    There are all kinds and grades of caviar. Ever had a sushi roll with the little orange spheres? That's flying fish roe. It's probably cheaper than @morning glory 's lumpfish caviar, been a while since we bought any. Then you have Beluga, Ossetra, Sevruga being "traditional" Russian caviar and the most expensive. You also have salmon and trout caviar, plus the American grown caviar from sturgeon and paddlefish.

    We have a place in Fort Lauderdale that supplies yachts, and sells online, with various caviars, white and black truffles, high end meats like Iberico and Serrano hams, as well as other specialty products. Craig gets us caviar, truffles and escargot from there occasionally.

    We have salmon roe here which are also pink. They are larger than the lumpfish roe.
