Roe is an item produced by fish in a Fish Pond.

The sell price of Roe depends on the fish's base sell price. The equation is 30 + (base fish sell price / 2), rounded down to the next nearest integer. The health and energy gained from eating roe is the same for all roe, including Sturgeon Roe.

Placing Sturgeon roe in a Preserves Jar will create Caviar. All other fish roe will create Aged Roe.

The sell price of Roe does not benefit from any Profession, but the sell prices of Aged Roe and Caviar do benefit from the Artisan Profession.
