Sturgeon AquaFarms LLC Company Information
- United States
After successfully importing Beluga, Sevruga and Osetra broodstock on 13 trans-atlantic flights from Europe and 7 years of permit applications, they finally reached their current home near the borders of Alabama and Georgia in Bascom, Florida. Our facility, which was built in 2009, using modern sustainable limited footprint designs, sits on 120 acres in Northwest Florida atop the Floridan aquifer which provides a consistent 19C water temperature, long periods of sunlight, drinking grade water, free of pollutants and disease and an area free of natural predators. Over the past 5 years we have focused on our hatchery development and sexing techniques having used the most advanced ultrasound possible. From 2011-2014 we spawned numerous generations of Beluga producing more than is believed to exist in the Caspian Sea. We then followed with further generations of Sevruga, Sterlet, Osetra and Siberian sturgeon. Our operation has been so successful that we have grown over 80,000 sturgeon which has pushed us to advance sustainable aquaculture and sturgeon rearing technology. As the only company in possession of these critically endangered species in the United States, we have a unique position to not only contribute to the conservation of these species but to educate the public in the trade of caviar and sturgeon meat, a new product for the U.S. market. As of 2016, our original broodstock have reached a size of over 150kg and continue to provide valuable offspring for the expansion of our facility as one of the largest of its kind in the world.
