Wild Beluga caviar
Banned in: The U.S.

Foodies who love caviar must make do without the eggs of the wild beluga sturgeon. In 2005, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service implemented a ban in an attempt to revive the species' dwindling numbers. While the prohibition disappoints caviar connoisseurs, it has created new business opportunities for American fisheries.

"The ban has paved the way for aquaculture," says Betsy Sherrow, co-owner of the Seattle Caviar Co., a caviar wholesaler. "People are disappointed, because beluga was their favorite caviar, but our domestic caviar is excellent and sells very well. Aquaculture is the wave of the future."
