Sustainability

From farm to table

STURGEON, FARMED

Sterling Caviar is part of the Stolt Sea Farm group, whose products have been awarded the Friends of the Sea certification and whose rigorous operating systems have resulted in its aquaculture farms being ISO 14000 and GLOBALG.A.P. certified.

SUMMARY

All species of sturgeon have been threatened with extinction for several years. It is for this reason that, since 1998, they have been covered by the CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) regulation, which regulates and monitors the sale of sturgeon and its derivative products, including caviar. The CITES regulation currently strictly prohibits the marketing of caviar derived from wild stocks; therefore, only caviar from farms is a legal and sustainable product.

In the case of Sterling Caviar, only fry in captivity is used in reproduction or caviar production. For this reason, our activity has no negative effects on the wild stocks of sturgeon that live in the rivers near our farms.
