Arctic Roe of Scandinavia is the pioneering producer of the world’s most unique delicacy, Black Caviar, produced without a single fish having to die. Sturgeon species have become extinct already, therefore, making Black Caviar without killing the fish aids in the recovery and survival of the world’s sturgeon population.
A microchip is affixed to each sturgeon so its growth curve and harvests can be monitored over a decade or longer. On average, every second year, the females are milked for caviar, and on each caviar tin or jar sold, the name of the individual female sturgeon and the date of production is printed on a label.
The female sturgeons occupy a paper mill in southern Sweden on the banks of the large river Lagan which empties into the North Sea. Arctic Roe recycles more than 99% of the daily water consumption, and on-site wells provide water for the fish.
Swedish Black Caviar can be found in Michelin Guide restaurants, fish delicacies and retail stores. It can also be ordered directly from the company here.
