This prehistoric fish has been swimming the world’s waterways for over 200 million years and remains one of the most fascinating and elusive creatures in existence. Known for their impressive size and unique appearance, the Sturgeon is a sight to behold.

With its long, streamlined body, a distinctive elongated snout and diamond-shaped scales, this ancient fish is truly a marvel of evolution. And with a lifespan that can reach up to 100 years, the Sturgeon is a true symbol of strength, resilience, and longevity.

The history

of Sturgeon

The history of Sturgeon is a tale of luxury and refinement that stretches back to ancient times.

Revered by royalty and sought after by epicures, the sturgeon roe has long been synonymous with exquisite taste and sophistication and has been prized for its roe for thousands of years.

From the royal courts of ancient Persia to the palaces of Imperial Russia, caviar was a symbol of wealth and power, a delicacy that only the most elite could afford.

Over the past few decades, there has been a significant shift in the caviar industry from wild to farmed caviar.

This change was driven by the growing awareness of the environmental impact of overfishing and the subsequent decline in wild sturgeon populations.

The Founder and CEO of Rossini Caviar Jacob Rossini is recognized as one of the leading experts in caviar and is considered one of the first in the world to see the benefits of switching from wild to farmed caviar.

Farmed caviar has since become the dominant source of caviar worldwide. The sturgeons are raised in controlled environments, allowing for sustainable breeding and production of high-quality caviar without harming wild sturgeon populations.

Today, farmed caviar exclusively makes up the world market.

There are 27 different species of sturgeon in the world and come in a range of sizes, depending on the species.

From the smallest sturgeons at around 0,75 meters in length to the largest sturgeon species the Beluga sturgeon, which can reach lengths of up to 6 meters and weigh over a ton. Sturgeons reach maturity at different ages depending on the species.

For example, the Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser baerii) reaches maturity at around 8-10 years of age, while the Beluga sturgeon (Huso huso) can take up to 20 years to reach maturity.

When time



At Rossini Caviar, we pride ourselves on our deep understanding of the sturgeon species and their unique maturation processes.

It takes time, patience, and expertise to breed and raise these majestic fish to maturity before their beautiful roe is ready for extraction.

A process that with some species can take up to 10-15 years before producing the roe that will ultimately end up as exquisite caviar as an element of a beautiful dish.

and traceability

Transparency is essential to our philosophy of making pristine caviar and we are dedicated to providing complete traceability at every stage of the production process.

Lot numbers on the back of each of our caviar tins are used to track that specific caviar back to the individual sturgeon from which it originates by assigning a unique code to each batch of caviar that we produce. The lot code includes information such as the date of production, the location of the caviar farm where the sturgeon was raised, and the specific species of sturgeon the caviar came from.

This ensures full traceability in the caviar’s entire journey from the sturgeon, throughout the caviar production process all the way to the serving on a plate.

We want to make sure that you know that every time you indulge in our exquisite caviar, you are making an informed and responsible choice with confidence in the authenticity and origin of the caviar.


CITES stands for the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora and is an international agreement that regulates the international trade of endangered and threatened species including sturgeon and caviar, to ensure their conservation and sustainable use.
