Farmed sturgeon and its caviar from Spanish company Caviar Nacarii have been awarded Friend of the Sea sustainability certification.

While an endangered species in the wild, farming sturgeon has been widely accepted as a sustainable alternative to obtain high quality caviar. Caviar Nacarii is located in Aran Valley, where natural elements of the Mediterranean and borealapine result in a vast diversity of ecosystems in a small territory, perfect conditions for raising sturgeon.

Caviar Nacarii has implemented strict water-quality management processes and regularly monitors all stages of micro-filtrations. The company has also implemented an organic waste and drainage chamber to ensure that the waste waters leaving the farm is as unpolluted as possible.

“With Friend of the Seas’s sustainable guarantee we can highlight our efforts to produce the best possible conditions for our sturgeon and caviar production,” said Antonia Portalo, production director of Caviar Nacarii.
