Melbourne: Looking for salmon roe in the sac

Thanks mr_gimlet!

It looks like those guys sell salmon caviar but that's not exactly what I'm looking for... I'm looking for the raw material for the caviar, which I will then make into caviar myself.

The way I've been able to buy it before, it comes in entire egg bladders: basically big sacs of eggs that come out of the fish in a huge lump. It looks kind of like this: http://kyotofoodie.com/wp-content/upl... (though the roe in that picture has been marinated

)

I live and work in West Melbourne, just north of Flagstaff Gardens.

I'm a recent transplant to Melbourne (from San Francisco) and am eagerly seeking fresh salmon roe with which to make ikura.

I have tried at Victoria Market but to no avail. If anyone in this town sells the stuff, I'd very much appreciate hearing about it!

I wonder what the differences are when using cannisters frozen at higher temperatures than the -20C which the Pacoject site recommends. Does anyone here have detailed experience?
