Farmed caviar is an excellent alternative to the caviar obtained from the wild. With many years of research and preparations behind them, sturgeon farms in France, Italy, Israel, United States and other countries are steadily increasing their share in the caviar market. Constant improvement in farming procedures including the fish diet, temperature fluctuations, fish density at the farms, etc. results in the great-tasting product that is comparable with the best caviars from the Caspian and the Black Seas and at the same time is environmentally sound.
