Caviar Facts

This with the fish we raise in our farm. There are mainly four different sturgeon species in our farm. Siberian sturgeon Baerii, Stellatus or Sevrugan and the Russian sturgeon Osetra. Then we have the most talked about sturgeon Beluga. In our farm, it is mainly Osetra sturgeon that we breed. The sturgeon is just as old and has actually survived the dinosaur and fossils of sturgeon that are 285 million years old have been found.

The different sturgeon species have slightly different lifespans and can in some cases live for over 100 years. They also provide caviar at different ages. Baerii is the sturgeon that most quickly produces a caviar that we can produce and sell. It takes about 4-6 years before you get a quality that is accepted by us. The Siberian sturgeon Baerii is a freshwater fish and comes from Siberia's rivers and lakes originally.

When it comes to Sevrugan, it takes a little longer between 6 to 8 years before we can produce caviar with all the character that a real caviar connoisseur wants. Among those who eat a lot of caviar, it is Sevrugan and its caviar that counts. In addition, the meat is a real delicacy and in the wild, Sevrugan is considered the real connoisseur when choosing what to eat. Sevrugan is the smallest sturgeon we have in our farm, it is also the fish that is most difficult to raise on a farm. Sevrugan originates from the Caspian and Black Seas.

After that comes the so-called Russian sturgeon or in everyday speech the Osetra sturgeon with a breeding of between 8 to 12 years. Depending on when you take the eggs, the time here in addition to the taste and a big impact when it comes to the size of the eggs. Osetra has a very fine caviar and is perhaps one of the finest of many. It is also this sturgeon that has most of the color combinations on its caviar.

Osetra sturgeon originates from the Caspian Sea and dear children have many names, here are some depending on where in the world you are: Osetra, Ossetra, Oscietra, Asetra in common, however, is that the fish's Latin name is Acipenser gueldenstaedtii.

Belugan, who is the king of sturgeons and the most expensive caviar, takes his time and only leaves a quality caviar between 20 and 25 years old. When the caviar is taken from this sturgeon, it weighs between 100 to 150 kilos and can then give many kilos of caviar. The largest Beluga ever caught weighed 1571 kilos and was caught in the river Volga in 1827. The beluga is considered the largest freshwater fish in the world. Today you will not find such large fish as Beluga is farmed for its caviar. Origin of the Black, Caspian and Adriatic Seas.
