The only Beluga aquafarm in U.S. is Sturgeon Aquafarm in Florida where pure beluga is raised and which has a unique sustainable production of caviar. For the first time in 15 years Marky's offers you a true Beluga Caviar (Huso Huso) on U.S. market.
The largest of all sturgeon species is the most prestigious of all due to its caviar, once the most expensive food product in the world. It has been unavailable in the USA since 2005 when it was placed on the Endangered Species Act list, making it illegal in trade. Sturgeon Aquafarms, at that time, was the only facility in the USA with live fish. In 2016, Sturgeon Aquafarms obtained the only existing permit exemption to trade in this species.
The species endured a 90% decline in global stocks over the last 60 years.
