Caviar is a type of roe, and roe is the eggs that come from fish (most famously, the sturgeon). True caviar can come from four types of sturgeon: Beluga, Osetra, Sterlet, or Sevruga.
Caviar should be kept cold and served chilled, never at room temperature. Metallic spoons should not be used while serving or eating it because they could leave an unfortunate metallic taste on the roe.
It's considered a delicacy, often eaten raw as an appetizer, with some caviar fetching a high price. Historically, the most prized types of caviar came from the Caspian and Black Seas, but due to overfishing, caviar is now produced around the world.
