The story of caviar begins with that of sturgeon.
So, before we started talking about caviar, sturgeon was far more interesting than it’s eggs!
Throughout history, the Black Sea and Caspian Sea have been designated as the exclusive kingdom of sturgeon.
Nearly all Acipenser species are sea fish that swim up rivers into freshwater at spawning time.
Sturgeons are fished on their journey from marine waters to spawning grounds, in fresh waters around estuaries and along coastlines
Sturgeon fishing is practised almost all year round, except during the hottest summer months in Iran, and in the depths of winter on the northern shores of the Caspian Sea, during freeze-up.
For almost 25 years, Jacques Nebot has forged close ties with Iranian producers and masters.
A caviar expert, Jacques Nebot lived through the golden age of wild Iranian caviar.
