Caviar is a luxury food that can be priced as high as $12,000 per pound. You might think that a delicacy that people make this much of a fuss over has some specialized method to acquire. But that would be wrong. Turns out the process behind extracting caviar from a sturgeon isn’t elegant at all.

How is caviar made?
First things first: Caviar can only come from sturgeon, and most frequently come from beluga, sterlet, kaluga, osestra, or American shite sturgeon. All caviar is technically roe, but not all roe is caviar.
