One of the rarest breeds, both in nature and in farms, is Kaluga (Huso dauricus) – a freshwater fish of the Beluga genus, the sturgeon family. Naturally, this caviar is a rather rare and most sought-after delicacy among gourmets around the world. That's what determines kaluga caviar price.
When choosing Kaluga caviar, you must be ready for the fact that the color of a real product can vary from dark green and dark gray to silver and brown. Moreover, the lighter the shade, the better and tastier the finished product.
Description and features
Let's take a look at the main characteristics of Kaluga sturgeon caviar.
The diameter of Kaluga eggs is from 3.5 to 4mm.
The taste resembles beluga caviar, but the flavor is somewhat softer.
This caviar is quite fatty, so just a few teaspoons are enough to saturate.
An adult individual reaches a size of about 3 meters in length, and its weight is up to 150-170 kg.
Despite the fact that a few decades ago, fish were found in huge quantities in almost all fresh rivers and reservoirs, uncontrolled catches for valuable caviar have led to the fact that today the number has declined sharply.
In the wild, there are strict limits on the catch of Kaluga in terms of size and weight; along with the beluga, this fish is considered one of the endangered species. Mostly, caviar is produced in farms where fish are kept under special conditions, and caviar extraction is done correctly.
