Bust out your monocle and top hat and enjoy a little dish of fish eggs for today is Caviar Day. You may not be aware, but this holiday was created to encourage humane and environmentally friendly fishing...so be kind to fish as you eat the babies. Caviar was typically made from sturgeon fish originally, but recently eggs of other fish are being used in caviar.
