From Hatchery to Retirement: Socially Acceptable Caviar
Our Philosophy

As passionate about the welfare of our fish as we are the quality of our product, we’re exceptionally proud to say that we produce the only true cruelty-free Caviar in the world, championing a revolutionary process which can help save the sturgeon from extinction.

Despite their incredible history (sturgeon are largely unchanged since the earliest fossil records), they are more critically endangered than any other species*, largely due to over-fishing, poaching and pollution. Because they mature late in life, they are particularly vulnerable to depleted stock. In the wild, a female sturgeon could live for more than 60 years, yet many are “harvested” as soon as they reach maturity.

There has been a noticeable decline in sturgeon populations as the lucrative Caviar industry has grown. Following a worldwide ban on fishing wild stock, farms were introduced globally - however all the usual forms of Caviar production still result in the death of the sturgeon.

The patented method we use causes no stress or harm to our fish, who will be retired early to protected lakes and rivers, helping to replenish the wild population.

And, as we are breeding our own fish, we will soon be able to say that we are also the only farm in the UK producing Caviar from British-bred Sturgeon.

What’s all the Fuss about Caviar?

Legend has it that the ancient Persians believed Caviar to have medicinal properties, and well they might. The food it is thought they called “Khay-Var”, or “cake of power” is full of superfood qualities.
