About Ossetra Caviar

Next to the Beluga and Sevruga brands, Ossetra caviar rank as one of the most exquisite caviars in the world today. The diversity of Ossetra caviar relative to the taste profile, size and color of the beads can make each dining experience unique. The variances in the flavor of  Russian Osetra caviar is often attributed to the fact that the Ossetra sturgeons adapt to irregularities in their environment that ultimately influences the taste of the eggs.

This succulent caviar also provides consumers with a complex array of rich flavors

 

Stability, in so far as growth patterns and appearance is concerned, has been part of the reason caviar harvested from Ossetra Sturgeons have retained their value. The ancient Ossetra population is classified as a prehistoric mammal that has not evolved relative to their life span, size, weight and body composition. The name Ossetra also referred to as Oscietra, Osetra and Asetra is a transcription of the Russian word “осётр” which in English translates into sturgeon. However, the name Osetra refers specifically to the Acipenser gueldenstaedtii species but is used loosely for other sturgeons such as Acipenser Baerii sturgeons or Siberian sturgeon and the Amur Osetra which are farmed in the Amur River that flows on the state border between Russia and China. Today, the Siberian Sturgeons can be found in habitats all over the world due to their ability to adapt and flourish in a range of environments
