This caviar is harvested from an extremely rare fish of Sturgeon family called Caviar Beluga. Huso Huso is also recognised as the largest freshwater fish in the world. For its more than 100 years of life (the oldest registered specimen was 118 years old!), the fish may grow up to an incredible size of 7.2 meters and weigh up to 1.5 tons! During the spawning period, up to 25% of the female specimen weight is the precious Beluga caviar.
The older is the fish, the bigger the eggs, and the lighter will be the color, and the more intense. Last but not least, the grade of the eggs significantly influences the price of this beluga caviar. It is still considered one of the most exclusive seafood among the five existing kinds on the planet.
