Thought someone might be interested in this.
This is me working with sockeye salmon roe.

Unlike the salmon roe/ikura/ salmon caviar I have shown in the past throughout my travels, these are tiny. Because most roe is taken from larger varieties of salmon, they are about the size of peas. Sockeye salmon have tiny eggs. We get sockeye salmon this time of the year because it's caught by family friends just minutes~hours away from our home.
Even in Japan, these small eggs are salted as a whole - as seen in my first picture, in the bowl on the right. Then they cut them into bite size pieces and eat them on rice. It's a bit tough to eat because the sack containing the eggs can be a bit sticky/slimy even smelly. So apparently I'm probably one of the few idiots in the world that goes to the trouble of trying to separate the eggs. Sockeye salmon roe is much sweeter and actually tastes distinctly like sockeye salmon. Unfortunately because of their small size and fragility, I only manage to get about 50%-65% of the eggs.

I think I'm finally done. I may have made a break through in how the eggs are enclosed. I may be able to do this much easier in the future and with better yields.
