Bowfin, (Amia calva), freshwater fish of the order Amiiformes (infraclass Holostei); it is the only recognized living representative of its family (Amiidae), which dates back to the Jurassic Period (201.3 million to 145 million years ago). The bowfin is a voracious fish found in sluggish waters in eastern North America from the Great Lakes and Mississippi River basin southward to the Gulf of Mexico.

The bowfin (Amia calva) is also called the grindle, blackfish, or freshwater dogfish.

The bowfin is mottled green and brown and has a long dorsal fin and strong conical teeth. Females reach a length of 75 cm (30 inches). The largest bowfins weigh up to 9.8 kg (21.6 pounds). Males are usually smaller, growing to between 45.7 and 61 cm (18 and 24 inches) in length, and are also distinguished by a black tail spot circled with orange.

The bowfin spawns in spring. The male constructs a crude nest among vegetation to attract females. After the eggs are fertilized, he guards both the fertilized eggs and newly hatched young. Bowfins can live as long as 30 years. The bowfin is a generalist predator, preying on amphibianscrustaceansinsectssnakes, and other fishes, including other bowfins. Bowfins are preyed upon by alligators, and they are fished by sport anglers.

The bowfin can obtain oxygen by inhaling air into its gas bladder, as well as through its gills in the water. During the warmer months, when temperatures rise and dissolved oxygen in the water decreases, the bowfin rises to gulp air at the surface.

Despite the long-held assertion that the contemporary bowfin is the only living member of its family, one genetic and morphological study suggests that there is strong evidence that bowfins are made up of at least two, and possibly as many as four, distinct species. These lineages appear to have diverged between one and three million years ago, with one inhabiting the Great Lakes and Mississippi River basins and the other claiming rivers and streams from eastern Alabama east to Virginia’s Atlantic coast and south to Florida.

American Bowfin Caviar is a type of caviar that comes from the eggs of the Bowfin fish, which is native to North America. It has a unique flavor that is often described as earthy and slightly smoky, with a texture that is firm and slightly crunchy. It is a popular delicacy in the southern United States and is often served as an appetizer or garnish.

As you eat, the eggs pop onto your tongue, bringing out the rich, sweet taste. Then, you sense the unique flavor in your nose. The flavor is a special mixture of salt, fish, and mineral tastes.

American bowfin caviar is a good source of nutritious minerals and vitamins. Like most fresh sea fish, it contains omega-3 fatty acids, which promotes a health circulatory, nervous, and immune system. From a single serving of caviar, you can meet your daily need of vitamin B12. Vitamins B6, A, and E are also present in fish caviar. It also contains minerals like selenium, magnesium, and iron.


Bowfin caviar has a unique taste that is often described as earthy and slightly sweet. It has a firmer texture than other types of caviar and is often used as a substitute for more expensive varieties. You'll experience some herbal, earthy flavors with plenty of brine and some subtle fishiness—the right amount. Note that many critics point out that bowfin caviar is rather one-dimensional compared to some of the more complex fish roe products available.
