Acadian Sturgeon and Caviar Inc

Business Description

We founded Acadian Sturgeon and Caviar Inc in 2005 with the aim of producing sturgeon and caviar in aquaculture. Acknowledging the long time needed to produce sturgeon caviar in aquaculture we found product lines that would bring the necessary cash flow long before that. Since the beginning we started producing and selling live sturgeon (fertilized eggs, larvae and juveniles) from both Atlantic (Acipenser oxyrhynchus) and shortnose sturgeon (Acipenser brevirostrum) all over the world, for aquaculture, restocking, research or as ornamental fish. By supplying live sturgeon for restocking (for example in Poland and Germany for restocking in rivers flowing into Baltic Sea) and research (United States, Canada) we also contribute to the conservation and restoration of sturgeon species. Also acknowledging that at the end of the aquaculture production cycle of 7 to 10 years we will still need the time to develop the markets for our products, we turned to a over 100 years old, traditional and sustainable sturgeon fishery on Saint John River to use a small number of fish for market development. Usually aquaculture is developed when is too late after over fishing a stock (it happened with so many species, as for example the salmon or cod) people start developing aquaculture to supply the growing demand. We believe this is wrong, so we decided to use a small number of sustainably harvested sturgeon to develop markets for our coming aquaculture production and will later phase out the wild harvest and replace it with sustainable, land based aquaculture production.
