Italian caviar gets environmental certification

Friday, September 24, 2010, 03:30 (GMT + 9)

Friend of the Sea has certified Caviale SRL’s Russian sturgeon (Acipenser gueldenstaedtii), Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser baeri) and Adriatic sturgeon (Acipenser naccarii). The group is part of the Venatus SRL company.

‘Perluga Caviar’ and ‘Caviar Caviale’ are produced in one of the world’s largest sturgeon aquaculture farms set in the heart of the Lombardy region. The caviar has been grown under purely natural, ecologically compatible conditions since 2006.

Great care is taken to ensure that the aquaculture farm exceeds set aquaculture standards whilst a team of fish-farming experts assure constant monitoring of the site.

The aquaculture farms production methods were designed following the principles of sustainable farming practices and all precautions are undertaken to ensure that the farms and their conditions mimic those found in the sturgeons’ native breeding ground.

The facilities are lined with a layer of riverstone pebbles, there is an inflow of up to 2,000 litres of fresh water per second from the neighbouring river and additional springs guarantee optimum water conditions at all times. Furthermore, the typical seasonal fluctuations in temperature and natural light conditions all ensure that the sturgeons have a gradual and healthy growth.
