Russian fishermen first started fishing for sturgeons along the Volga River in the 11th century. But it wasn’t until the 19th century that caviar served on toast became a European delicacy.
As a result of pollution and overfishing, wild sturgeons are critically endangered. To prevent their extinction, the Paris Agreement of 1998 effectively banned all fishing of these ‘living fossils’ and set limits on the annual caviar trade. With farming being the only legal source of caviar supply today, new techniques have been developed to re-create the same quality of caviar found in the wild.
Our farms are built into lakes and water reservoirs, allowing our sturgeons to be reared in their natural environment without the use of chemicals or growth hormones. Tapping only on 100% pristine fresh water from unpolluted sources, they provide a perfect habitat which results in a high and consistent quality of caviar.
Now, you can enjoy nature’s finest bounty in an environmentally-sustainable way.
