Seafood is the ultimate energy source, suitable for every age group, providing essential nutrients not found in meat products such as chicken and meat. The local ocean seafood offers a wide variety to choose from.
You can choose between the different textures, tastes, and types of seafood to fulfill your health needs and provide an exceptional experience for your taste buds.
Some of the classifications of the variety of seafood are fish, shellfish, tunicates, and types of edible sea flora. These are further classified into different types based on their behavior, natural living habits, taste, and purpose.
These aquatic animals come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Fish is an excellent source of lean protein as it contains less fat with essential vitamins such as B and D, with the availability of iron and essential oils such as Omega-3.
Not every fish in the seafood city comes under lean protein. Some fish, such as salmon, contain a higher amount of fat. These fats are considered good and helpful for the heart’s healthy functioning.
Roe is the unfertilized eggs of the fishes that are fully ripened. The eggs are collected from an incision into the fish bodies, where the fish ovaries are situated. Roe is produced by fish such as Salmon, Cod, Whitefish, Trout, and Tobiko.
The most special Roe is the one obtained from the Sturgeons and named ‘Caviar’. The listed fishes (Salmon, Cod, Whitefish, Trout, and Tobiko) are a substitute source of Caviar. Still, the real Caviar is obtained only through the Sturgeons.
The eggs of Sturgeons also come under the category of Roe. Once cured with salt, they have been termed Caviar. The consumption of fish roe provides essential nutrients like selenium, folate, and phosphorus, with vitamins A, D, and B12.
Roe is also beneficial for the eyes as they are rich in antioxidants such as lutein and zeaxanthin, with choline that contributes to a healthy liver. The Roe obtained from Sturgeons (Caviar) is one of the most expensive food items. Due to the scarcity of Sturgeons, the large-scale breeding, the complicated process of harvesting, and the final obtained taste make ‘Caviar.’
A single kilogram of Caviar from Centennial Sturgeon can cost up to $39,500.
