  1. Perhaps it's best not to speculate as to how they "harvest" that particular item.

  2. What do you expect from San Francisco?

  3. Is it really all that different from fish roe?

  4. The Japanese refer to it as "soft roe." In one memorable episode of the original Iron Chef, one of the participants used Cod soft roe to produce an ice cream. In the Iron Chef Usenet newsgroup that I subscribed to this became known almost immediately as "cod spooge ice cream." And no, it apparently didn't taste very good although other preparations using the soft roe were quite well regarded.
