THE SUCCESSFUL TRANSITION FROM WILD TO CULTIVATED CAVIAR
The topic is certainly familiar to long-time caviar friends - around the turn of the millennium, the prices for wild sturgeon caviar rose dramatically, while the quality continued to deteriorate. After all 27 species of sturgeon were placed under the protection of the Washington Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), the trade in wild-caught caviar was finally banned worldwide in 2006.
At the same time, a new era began with sturgeon farming and the extraction of sturgeon caviar from aquaculture. More and more sturgeon farms went into operation worldwide. Today more than 50 companies produce sturgeon caviar. However, only a few sturgeon farms have been able to optimize the complex breeding and production processes to such an extent that they now (for three years) achieve an excellent taste quality as in the best wild sturgeon caviar times.
Every year we set ourselves the challenge of finding the best producers for you. Today, with over 16 exquisite varieties from selected sturgeon farms, we can offer you what is probably the largest selection of outstanding sturgeon caviar in Germany.
