Here Fishy Fishy

Opening a jar is way easier than catching a pregnant fish.

Just the other day, I had a real hankerin' for some caviar. So I thought to myself, I'll just go out and catch one of those white sturgeons and hope it's knocked up. Turns out it was harder than I expected. Like, a lot harder. You wouldn't believe how slippery those suckers are!

And then I got to thinking, this might literally be the hardest thing I've ever tried to do. Way harder than, say:

  • Greasing a pig
  • Mating a lightning bug with a cockroach
  • Capoeira
  • Eating cereal with chopsticks
  • Touching my tongue to my nose
  • Touching my tongue to a stranger's nose
  • Walking to space
  • Digesting lint

Consistent Quality through Sustainable Farming

As with any craft, the creation of caviar must begin with the finest ingredients. The finest ingredients in this case can only come from the finest, healthiest fish. Tsar Nicoulai caviar is always produced fresh, from sustainably farmed American white sturgeon. Sturgeon worldwide are endangered and most are protected, so we raise and harvest our own stock of exceptional fish. We thus ensure a dependable supply of top-quality artisanal caviar without depleting threatened native stock. We also control the entire process, from raising the fish to preparing their roe, so we are able to exert standards of quality control not available elsewhere. Our highly experienced caviar master oversees every aspect.

Our fish are raised in pristine fresh water and fed an all-natural diet at environmentally friendly aquaculture facilities in the western United States. Our sturgeon are raised naturally. We do not use any antibiotics, growth hormones, pesticides, biocides, bioengineering, radiation, fertilizers, or synthetic preservatives. Our farms are integrated, ecologically sustainable systems based upon natural biodiversity and biological processes to keep our sturgeon free from disease and stress. For example, natural duckweed grows on the surface to provide shade for the fish, and water hyacinth provides natural filtration. Our sturgeon thrive in these pristine conditions for seven to nine years until they are mature enough to produce caviar. The roe is then harvested, and prepared at our facilities in San Francisco. We use only a small amount of fine sea salt - a traditional process known as malossal. The end result is wonderfully fresh taste with a buttery smooth finish.

For more than three decades, we have been recognized internationally as pioneers in farming sturgeon for caviar, and have been instrumental in educating caviar producers worldwide on the methods of sustainability.

Providing that Caviar Touch

We ship our caviar direct, nestled in frozen gel packs. Storage instructions are included. When serving, we suggest transferring the caviar to a two-piece caviar serving set, with shaved ice in the lower bowl. Alternatively, nestle the opened jar in a bowl filled with shaved ice. When serving caviar, never use metal utensils as the alloys change its taste. Use only nonreactive materials such as glass, mother of pearl or even plastic. Serve Tsar Nicoulai Caviar on fresh blinis (traditional Russian buckwheat pancakes) with a dollop of tangy crème fraîche, paired with champagne or fine, chilled vodka. Caviar recipes abound online. If your important events just aren’t complete without the old-world refinement of this most prized of culinary gems, or if you can’t get through your weekend without a little taste of luxury, yet you are concerned about environmental impacts, fear not. Our caviar ensures both a clear conscience and epicurean satisfaction.
