No and never will. Horrible what they do to the fish.
I always thought it was cruel to eat caviar - despite the fact that I eat other animal products. But, after watching the process by which it is removed, there is nothing that would induce me to try it. It looks so cruel! ...YouTube.

Vee, Our 3 year old granddaughter was crying & crying, as she watched the Nemo DVD when Nemo lost his mum & siblings, in the opening scenes. The DVD had to be stopped, so her parents could explain things to her. (They've never had tv since she's been born, & the family are vegetarians.)

I have had it before, but I have never seen it harvested.
No and yes. Interesting to watch it harvested but *yuk* for me as I am not a fish fan.

I've never tried caviar before. I have a feeling I wouldn't like it. I'm not so sure about it from a sustainability point of view either. I've never seen it harvested though, so I don't know if it is farmed or wild.
I've never had caviar before and neither have I seen it been harvested. It something that I would try at least once.
Interesting one: I haven't eaten it, and nor have I seen it harvested...should I?
Only if you want the image of the poor fish being ... seared into your brain.

Okay . . . so now I think I must be thinking of something else because if it was horrible I would be very upset. I cannot stand fishing so I must be thinking of something else for sure. Now I don't want to know about harvesting caviar :((

Have only eaten 'fair dinkum' Caviar whilst flying First Class Internationally, on QANTAS, which is the biggest purchaser of Beluga Caviar, in the world, BTW!

I do buy those small jars of 'it' from Woolies', which I love on Toast, with Cream Cheese, & Smoked Salmon, & a hot 'cuppa'!

Yes, I'm well aware how it's harvested.

But look at the cruel way a fish is singularly caught, by a hook going through its' mouth, yet humans' think 'fishing' is a great 'sport', & relaxing! It's not for the fish!

We're a weird mob!
LOL! Oh, donjo. I think fishing is the pits. All those little Nemos... :'(

I tried it years ago and wasn't terribly impressed.
I tried it once and it was terrible, and no I could not get use to eating it. I think it is disgusting and a terrible waste of fish eggs. Yuck.
I'm with you. A terrible waste of fish eggs. We could let these eggs hatch and mature so that way we have more food to feed more mouths.

I love caviar! don't often eat it however.

I have eaten it in the past, I still like it, but haven't had a recipe to use it in lately. I have a small jar (or small tin) of the red stuff in the pantry. And no, I haven't seen it harvested.
by Miro
I've eaten it but nkt fussed on it to the point where I would include it in my diet. I can't recall watching it being harvested.
I love caviar. I have only had it on crackers etc. at a party I went to and another at an afternoon tea. But I certainly thought it was lovely.
I don't know about the harvesting side of things - can someone please explain (briefly).
Most of the fish from which it is harvested is dead/killed. They then slit her open and take her eggs.
by Vee
OK………well once they kill the fish, they take the eggs, and then what happens to the fish. Doesn't it get eaten too or are they discarding the fish. Would you explain it to me Vee ? And is this a procedure that is done in Russia (like for Russian Caviar), or is it the same the world over ?
