Hello,

Has anyone ever tried feeding their FW fish tobiko? You know, those small little red fish eggs you get when you go for sushi?

Is it generally safe?



Thanks!

When I used to fish for smelt in Kits I'd save the roe, freeze it in ice cube trays and feed it. Tobiko, I believe is just smelt roe with food coloring in it. It's a great way to prep fish for spawning, but a bit too high fat for a regular diet.

I was told that True tobiko is flying fish roe, but the stuff you get around here is died smelt eggs, much like you don't get real crab in a california roll
