Aquatech launches Emirati caviar line
Abu Dhabi producer Emirates Aquatech recently showcased its new range of luxury caviar and fish sturgeon fillets at SIAL Middle East 2013 in Abu Dhabi.
The newly launched range includes fresh and pressed caviar, fresh and frozen sturgeon fillets as well as hot and cold smoked sturgeon fillet.
Emirates Aquatech general manager Ahmed Mohammed Al Dhaheri commented: “SIAL Middle East is one of the leading food and beverage exhibitions in the region, and is the right platform for us to launch our new range of Emirati caviar and sturgeon fillets,”
“Our main objective for taking part is to generate more awareness among the gourmet food society on the first of its kind high quality Emirati produced caviar and sturgeon meat,” he continued.
The local company currently operates the world’s largest indoor recirculating sturgeon and caviar farms which covers approximately 56,000m2 . This allows them, at full capacity, to produce 35 tons of caviar and 1,000 tons of sturgeon meat.
Aquatech also breeds Siberian Sturgeon, a species currently protected by the UN Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. The producer aims to provide sustainably sourced caviar without the restrictions of seasonal harvesting.
