Sturgeon Nutrition and Well-Being
Your Heading 1
All our sturgeons feed on crustaceans, small mollusks and small worms, as our farms are located in their natural habitats. Other, non-Caspian Sea farms, are feed them granules that are composed of fish meal, oils, plants, minerals, and vitamins to ensure they get the nutrients that they need. This latter approach, however, does not produce the best of caviars.
Your Heading 2
These ingredients all come from high quality sources, including the fish meals and oils that come from sustainable, quota-managed fisheries. The granules that we use are also designed to match the needs and the size of the fish. They are generally 300μ at birth, but can grow to 9mm as full-grown females.
The total amount of food that is distributed to the fish is calculated each day to ensure adequate food for the fish based on factors that include water temperature, weight of the fish, and general appetite of the fish. We also constantly change our feeding practices based on additional research. This includes our own research laboratories and feed producers.
Your Heading 3
All of our females of caviar production are raised in low densities of 2-3kg/m2 in the Caspian Sea. This ensures their overall well-being.
Your Heading 4
Given that our farms have natural heating as a result of sun and oxygen that comes from the alae. In fish farms, however, quality water is provided and we make sure that the water is located close to the source. Any water that is then discharged is carefully monitored and complies with all environmental standards.
