What do you call fish eggs that you eat

Fish eggs that are served as food for humans is called "caviar." Caviar can come from a number of different types of fish which include shad, steelhead, mullet, sturgeon, striped bass, salmon, and herring. When serving caviar, put it in a glass or porcelain bowl over a bed of crushed ice. Never use a silver or stainless steel spoon as this can impart a tinny flavor to the caviar. Typically caviar is eaten on unsalted crackers, or lightly buttered toast points. Bon Appetit!
