    Where can you find cans of herring roe? Used to get 4 oz cans of Tidewater herring roe in Virginia but haven't seen it in years.

    I've been trying to find herring roe in a can and the price of it. Can't find in grocery stores. Can you tell me how to find Chowan herring roe in a can? Thanks.
