Hometown of YASA CAVIAR is the United of Arab Emirates, a country of
desert, faced to the Persian Gulf.
Why UAE for producing, not in Europe where is generally known for its farming of sturgeon? There is a deep connection with UAE and Iran in the background. In the south of Caspian Sea which adjacent to Iran has deep depth with gravel in lake bottom with moderate current, and is very suitable for growth of sturgeon. Iran has been producing great quality of caviar from great quality of sturgeon caught in south of Caspian Sea. In their trial-and-errors for long years, they have established artisanal technology for handling called “Iranian manufacturing method”. In this combination of great quality of sturgeon and know-how of caviar handling, Iranian caviar has raised its reputation. But after the revolution of Iran, Iran was politically opposed to European countries and the US, and became unable to export them directly. Therefore, UAE became their receiver of exporting Iranian caviar. UAE which locates in opposite shore of Persian Gulf became the exporting junction of Iranian caviar, and the know-hows and human resources which Iran has been accumulated are acquired.

Siberian Sturgeon – Acipenser Baerii/Singular Sturgeon Grows Only in Fresh Water
YASA CAVIAR is the fish eggs of Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser bairii). Why we chose Siberian sturgeon, not Beluga or Russian sturgeon (osetra)? The biggest reason is that Siberian sturgeon is the only one sturgeon to grow only in fresh water. Most of sturgeon come and go between ocean and fresh water. But reproducing the environment is too difficult. So only Siberian sturgeon is available to be raised in farm with ideal environment. We grow high quality of Siberian sturgeon in stress-less environment as possible to be competitive with the natural product.
Similar Flavor to Osetra, Pure Blood of Caviar
Even Siberian sturgeon is suitable for cultivation, it is meaningless if good quality of caviar has less flavor and food texture. 。 Siberian sturgeon has little smaller particles than Osetra, but the flavor is very similar to it, and is highly evaluated as a top-quality of caviar.
