In Greece, bottarga (or avgotaraho in Greek) is produced primarily from the flathead mullet caught in Greek lagoons. The whole mature ovaries are removed from the fish, washed with water, salted with natural sea salt, dried under the sun, and sealed in melted beeswax.
Avgotaraho Messolonghiou, made from fish caught in the Messolonghi-Etoliko Lagoons is a European and Greek protected designation of origin, one of the few seafood products with a PDO.
Our product "Botargo Stefos" is created by George Stefos and his family who grew up on the shores of the lagoon of Messolonghi -Etoliko and learned the art botargo near local traditional fishermen.
