Beluga Caviar Banned…

…Americans are nonplussed.

For the 6 of you out there who purchase beluga caviar on a regular basis, you are now S.O.L when it comes to purchasing the fish eggs legally.The government is preparing to ban imports of beluga caviar in an effort to help prevent extinction of the sturgeon that produces the prized eggs.

And remember, when caviar is outlawed, only outlaws will have caviar.

No Caviar for You!

So you like a little beluga on a cracker? It appears as if you are now out of luck as he U.N. agency that controls trade in endangered species has halted all export of the caviar because of non-compliance with a conservation agreement that was signed in 2001.

The announcement does not affect the international trade in caviar taken from farmed sturgeon from California, Idaho, France and Italy. So the folks over at Seattle Caviar Company will still have something to sell. I can now rest easy.
