buy caviar online Farmed in the Caspian Sea

Our sturgeon and thus your caviar is farmed in the Caspian Sea - the evolutionary origin of the sturgeon. Our sturgeons exist in harmony with mother nature, in the same place they were conceived some 250 million years ago.

None of our sturgeon, unlike non-Caspian Sea producers, have been relocated from their natural environment and transported to far away countries or farms. Thus an excellent ecosystem that ensures quality and sustainability is guaranteed.

The only true caviar comes from the Caspian Sea.

Our caviar adheres to genuine sustainability not marketing buzz words.

As our sturgeons are farmed in their native, prehistoric habitat, you will be rewarded with the same sumptuous taste and divine texture that was enjoyed by the likes of Alexander the Great and Tsar Nicholas II.

We have  not  introduced any exotic sturgeon species, genotypes or various hybrids, which cause a dramatic loss of genetic integrity, into our farms.

Our sturgeon feed on crustaceans, small mollusks and small worms.

We were the first to use ultrasound scanners for sexing our sturgeon, which is now a technique that is used by breeders throughout the world. It allows us to separate our sturgeon and optimize our practices along the way.

Our caviar has been approved by CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora).

This ensures and legally guarantees traceability. Every tin of your caviar is traced to the fish that went inside it.

Our registration number with CITES is 530. Please see here for more information. Please note that if the caviar you buy does not have an Export CITES, the caviar is not coming from the farm, and instead is being sold via an intermediary.

In 2001, Iran was exempted from CITES international ban because it has a functioning management system for sturgeon (CITES Approval for Iranian Caviar in 2001), (CITES Commendation for Iran's Conservation Efforts in 2001) and was commended again in 2003 for imposing the ban upon itself to help to replenish the depleted stocks. (CITES on Iranian Caviar Quotas in 2003)

Iran was commended several times by the UN for their efforts in protecting the sturgeon in 2003 (UN Report on Caspian States Conservation Efforts in 2003) and again in 2006 (UN-Backed Body on Caviar Export Ban in 2006)

The success of these conservation efforts are correlated with Iran being the largest exporter of caviar in the world between 1998 and 2006 (European Commission on Caviar Trade)

About Buying Almas Caviar

Iranian Almas caviar had long been the sole preserve of Shahs, Tsars and Sultans, for it was only these men who ruled absolute over millions, by the divine right of God, that had the right to taste the angelic flavors, and feel the tenderness of these gastronomic pearls over their tongue.

The rarity of Almas caviar is so because the sturgeon from which it is produced from is the Albino Beluga sturgeon, who has to reach the specific age of 100 years old before the eggs can be obtained. The roe is a brilliant white, spiritually so, sparkling with a diamond like finish.

Offering the most delicious taste, uniquely tender and nuanced in its flavor, with the richness of fresh buttery Beluga and an aroma that is all its own, you will slip into a dreamlike state with the very first bite.

A Regal History

To taste Almas is to taste the soul of Iran, bathed in a history that stretches back nearly 3000 years. Almas’ delightfully smooth flavor, peppered with distinct notes of Autumnal nut and abundantly rich cream is offset by a beautifully tender feel, a tenderness that can only come from eggs sourced from a sturgeon that is over 100 years old.
