The Kaluga-Amur is a recent hybrid between two sturgeon species with a long tradition: the female is from the Huso Dauricus species and the male is from the Acipenser Schrenckii species, both typical of the waters of the Amur River on the border between China and Russia. Although a more recent addition to the caviar family, it is nevertheless highly sought-after: this sturgeon begins to give caviar between 10 to 15 years of age, a period in which the female finally begins to lay her eggs. The roe, larger in size than other types of caviar, reaches up to 2.9 to 3.2 mm in diameter and is characterized by beautiful green and golden reflections. The complex and almost mineral flavor, on the other hand, make it one of the most popular types of caviar with Chefs.
In order to produce quality caviar, one of the fundamental aspects is the feeding method: the use of “drip-feeding” guarantees that the sturgeon are always feeding on fresh food. In order to avoid that the fish can feed on food that has settled at the bottom of the river, nets are placed down that prevent them from reaching the bottom and therefore the muddy substrate - which would inevitably compromise the refined taste of the caviar.
