Feeding Trout Eggs

Has anyone fed their fish trout/salmon eggs? I brought home 2 egg sacks from Brown trout, and was wondering how to store them. Right now I have them in a few jars with water in the fridge. They seem to be soaking up a lot, so I was thinking about adding some salt to the water. Can they be poached? If someone knows how to store them let me know, It'd be greatly appreciated.

I would Boil then freeze them before i considered feeding them to my fish, if fed raw they could pass on wild diseases that the trout may have had!

freezing might be enough to kill any bacteria or parasites..

The only thing you have to worry about, raw or cooked, are chemical and heavy metal contaminants.

ya MIGHT kill it, but would you really be willing to take that risk? Especially if your in an area that gets a "Real Winter" they may have built a tolerance to cold from winter. Boiling will also kill any Viruses that the eggs May Contain. Kinda one of those if one doesn't do it the other will type things. Better safe than tank full of dead fish sorry.

I boiled them, and put some in saltwater in a jar (refrigerated), then froze the rest. They still seem to enjoy them.
