Russian caviar from sturgeon species native to the Caspian Sea is ranked at the top for flavor, texture and quality. The top species include Beluga Sturgeon (Huso Huso), Russian/Osetra Sturgeon (Acipenser gueldenstaedtii), Siberian Sturgeon (Acipenser baerii) and Starry Sturgeon (Acipenser stellatus). These species produce Russian caviar like Beluga, Osetra, Baerii and Sevruga. All Russian caviar from these species is currently farmed. Unfortunately most of the Russian caviar on the world market is farmed in China and countries other than the U.S. Almost all Caspian native caviar on the U.S. market is imported from China. These foreign farming facilities have little to no health or environmental regulations enforced. They may also use hormone injections to hasten roe production, antibiotics to counter poor sanitation, and borax as a caviar preservative. U.S. regulations ban these ingredients from use in aquaculture, however importation laws obtaining to products containing these ingredients are not enforced. Marshallberg Farm uses the highest of filtration systems to produce possibly the cleanest Osetra caviar on the planet. As a U.S. producer, the farm does not use hormones, antibiotics or harmful preservatives. The only ingredients in the caviar are pure bred Russian sturgeon roe and salt, aiming to mimic caviar harvested fresh from the wild. The farm’s state-of-the-art recirculating aquaculture systems are strictly regulated for environmental and health safety. Sturgeon and caviar raise in the U.S. using indoor recirculating systems is ranked a “Best Choice” for sustainable seafood by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch.
