What is the difference between chum salmon caviar and pink salmon caviar?

There are several species of salmon fish, among them chum and pink salmon, which means that they are subspecies of salmonids.

The chum salmon caviar is bigger, and a membrane of the caviar is stronger. If you are planning a long lasting feast, it’s better to choose the chum salmon caviar. It will stay longer on the table maintaining its freshness. The fat content in the chum salmon caviar is higher by nature, which also affects the taste. The pink salmon caviar is slightly smaller, the caviar membranes are delicate and the taste is perhaps a little more intense. In Russia, for example, most of the experts prefer this caviar. Both types of caviar are rich in nutrients and have a high nutritional value.

Why do the caviar prices fluctuate so much?

Caviar is a product which is obtained from nature. When the population of salmon fish reduces, then there’re less fishing quotas. Caviar becomes a scarce good and become more expensive. After a certain time, a salmon fish population increases and the caviar prices comes down.

Could it lead to overfishing and thus little caviar?

The caviar by Zarendom® is obtained in Alaska. The system of the local fishing industry was introduced in the 50s of the last century and has excellently proved up to now. This system is based on the current research and is constantly completed. The control over each species of fish is carried out regarding the total population, and then the fish quotas are allocated. This makes it possible not only to preserve the stocks but to increase the population of salmon fish. Currently, there is no risk for any type of salmon fish.

Why are there different consistencies of caviar?

Caviar is a natural product. If the caviar membranes are very tender, what is connected with the fishing season, they burst during processing. The caviar by Zarendom® differs in that no thickening agent is used in the production. Thus, the natural and pure taste is preserved regardless of a different consistency.

How much is shipping?

If you order 4 kg of caviar or more, then the shipping is free. The shipping fee is 7.90 EUR with less than 4 kg. For shipping outside of Germany, look at the price table.

Do I have to stay at home and wait for the parcel?

Not necessarily. The shipping is done by the postal delivery service DHL. If a postman doesn’t find anyone at home, he will carry a parcel to the nearest postal branch. You can go there with your passport next day and take the parcel (and payment in cash on delivery).

One may also put a note on the bell with a request to give a parcel to some particular neighbors, if you have agreed with them beforehand. This applies primarily to the shipping in Germany - there are also differences in the postal service of other countries.

After sending the parcels, we always send a notification by e-mail with a link to the DH L page, which displays the current status of delivery.
