We are a family firm that has been in the Aquatic business since the early 1990's. We started selling koi carp and would get the odd sturgeon here and there, which we grew to love, so we started selling sturgeon as well. In the later part of 2009, we started to focus on Sturgeon, with the view of becoming Britain's Premier Sturgeon Farm.
After many years of hard work, the company was born. Our aim is to breed sturgeon so we can repopulate multiple breeds of sturgeon in the wild, which will bring the wild stock back up to the levels it should be (to the IUCN status, least concern).
Mark visited farms across Europe to find the best quality sturgeon we can provide for our customers and hand picks the sturgeon to ensure our customers have the best possible quality. As we are CEFAS Authorized, we can import sturgeon into the UK from all over the world!
Our fish are quarantined before they are made ready for sale, and are checked by our vet, to ensure they are 100% disease-free and are in optimum health.
We source the highest quality sturgeon and feed them high protein food, keep them in 5 star accommodation. This is why you should choose us.
Exceptionally proud to be leading the world in ethical Caviar production™, we use a revolutionary no-harm process which has the potential to help save the sturgeon from extinction. Our policy of complete transparency means every gram we sell can be traced right back to the sturgeon who produced it.
We produce and ship all of our own Caviar right here - in fact, we’re the UK’s only operational ethical Caviar producer . The tanks in our state-of-the-art facilities are fed by pure Yorkshire spring water, filtered from the stream that runs alongside. Our Caviar is salted using the best British salt, which acts as a natural preservative.
And there you have it. The finest Caviar, ethically produced in the UK.
A taste of real luxury, and a clear conscience infact you can instantly recognise if the caviar that you are considering buying is Ethical and Sustainable by this unique symbol.
NEW... We are now offering a pre-order service.

As passionate about the welfare of our fish as we are the quality of our product, we’re exceptionally proud to say that we produce the only true cruelty-free Caviar in the world using our massage technique.
