STURGEON

Sturgeon is one of the oldest creatures that found on Earth. Predecessors of sturgeon appeared approximately 200 million years ago and sturgeon as we know it today – during the Upper Cretaceous (145-66 million years ago). Since then it has gone through minor evolutionary changes, which basically makes it a living fossil. Swimming across seas and rivers since times of dinosaurs, today it is on the verge of extinction. 

 

Caviar producing sturgeons are among the most valuable of all wildlife resources. If proper measures of sustaining the species are not taken, it will soon disappear from the face of Earth. We understand the importance of preserving this ancient and noble fish and see aquaculture as the only way of producing caviar.
