Name : CAVR (Latvia)
description : We devoted a lot of time, effort, patience and innovation to make our product what it is: farmhouse caviar with the supreme quality of wild roe, which was once the ultimate symbol of aristocratic elegance.
Since the 1800s and the high demand in the early 20th century, when it was introduced to the dominant aristocracy, the sturgeon population has suffered from overfishing and has virtually disappeared.
As a result of the boom in the industry and aquaculture, water quality in natural reservoirs has declined. The application of modern aquaculture technologies with our own innovative developments allows us to avoid dependence on fluctuations in water quality in natural reservoirs, thus ensuring the constant quality of our caviar. In order to ensure a consistent level of high egg quality, mature female fish are removed from natural water reservoirs and placed in a closed recirculation aquaculture system (SCR). Water is supplied to the system from an artesian well and treated by an innovative treatment system developed on the basis of oxygen purification technology.
As a result, without the addition of chemical substances, essentially by imitating the physical processes of nature, the oxygen structure and the softness of the water are improved in the same way as the sturgeon's natural habitat.
We apply the Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) widely recognized in advanced aquaculture industries with our own innovative oxygen-based purification system. As a result, our fish benefit from the purest and most favourable freshwater conditions during the maturation phase, as harvest time approaches, eliminating the need to use hormones, antibiotics or any chemical feed supplements, except the best feeds on the European market.
Our custom-made tanks and water treatment plants are designed to leave no harmful impact on the environment. We understand the importance of taking special care of the environment because it is the greatest legacy we will leave to future generations. In our opinion, neither the technology nor the product can be so valuable if you leave the empty dessert behind.
Our facilities and technology are environmentally friendly and we intend to maintain the ecological factor as a key element in future innovations and developments.
