Sturgeon Aquafarms – Press-Release – October 22, 2018



BASCOM, MIAMI, October 22, 2018.

Sturgeon Aquafarms LLC, the exclusive aquaculture facility in the possession of the Caspian Beluga sturgeon (Huso huso) in the United States and the largest Beluga fish farm in the world, together with Marky’s Caviar, it’s exclusive distributor of Beluga caviar in the US, today jointly announced that a planned sustainable production of the world renown Beluga caviar for the 2018 holiday season would be reduced due the aftermath of hurricane Michael.

“This extremely powerful storm, that recently swept Northern Florida, caused widespread damages, including electrical power outages leading to a disruption of our 2018 production cycle.” – said Mark Zaslavsky, Managing Partner of Sturgeon Aquafarms LLC and CEO of Marky’s Caviar. “Despite this extraordinary situation, we are committed to delivering our first harvest of this locally produced highest-quality Beluga caviar. We are doing everything possible so the gourmet food lovers from around the world can enjoy this exclusive delicacy.”

Over the past two decades environmental degradation, invasion of exotic species and overfishing caused the rapid decline of Caspian sturgeon including the loss of the 90 percent of the Beluga population. This environmental situation prompted the founders of Sturgeon Aquafarms LLC to initiate breeding the original five species in the US. The aquafarm has successfully established control of the sustainable caviar and meat production for interstate commerce and export. The company actively collaborates with littoral states of the Caspian region to study, protect, preserve and assist in repopulation the Caspian Beluga sturgeon in the wild.
