The shovelnose sturgeon, otherwise known as Hackleback fish, sand, or switch tail sturgeon are a smaller size sturgeon that are found on the Mississippi and Missouri rivers in the United States. The Hackleback sturgeon is one of the most common types of sturgeon found in these rivers and in North America in general. Wild hackleback sturgeon caviar is very popular in the United States and around the world due to its great flavor, and because it is one of the few types of sturgeon fish which are still commercially fished in the wild.
The roe of the Hackleback is quite dark and a medium size compared to other sturgeon caviars. The flavor of American Hackleback Caviar is very rich and nutty and is often found to be very comparable to other caviars from the Caspian and Black Seas.

Some things Things You Didn’t Know About Caviar
Caviar is one of the oldest delicacies
Before raw oysters, before Champagne, before even truffles were deemed a delicacy, caviar was coveted by kings and the aristocracy. Ancient Greeks, Romans and Russian tsars were all known to splurge on caviar.
Caviar is not as expensive as you think
OK, it’s definitely not cheap. But caviar prices have dropped in recent years as advances in aquaculture, especially domestically, have made farmed sturgeon more available and affordable. Coincidentally, the U.S. was also responsible for a severe drop in prices in the early 19th century, when lake sturgeon was discovered to be plentiful here.
The most expensive caviar on record is from a 100-year-old fish
Almas caviar, from the eggs of 60 to 100-year-old Iranian beluga sturgeon, clocked in at roughly $35,000 per kilo ($1,000/oz.). Can you imagine killing a fish older than your grandma for its eggs?
