Miami, FL - June 25, 2013 - Think of Russia when you think caviar? Think again. Sturgeon AquaFarms (SAF) in the tiny town of Bascom, Florida boasts more beluga sturgeon than the Caspian Sea.

The company began importing live Caspian beluga and sevruga in 2003 – just two years before mounting international pressure forced the U.S. to ban the import of beluga-related products. It is now the only company in the U.S. authorized to raise beluga sturgeon.
