Why is tarama (carp roe) no longer available?

billrosenblatt | Aug 12, 2017 05:35 AM

I regularly use tarama (carp roe) in cooking. I'm talking about straight tarama, not taramosalata which is tarama mixed with olive oil and lemon juice. However, it's no longer available on store shelves, and when I called Krinos Foods (whose brand I use) they told me there's a problem with availability. Yet there's plenty of taramosalata available, just not pure tarama. Does anyone know what's going on? Is this a temporary shortage or permanent?
