Pointy Snout caviar is made from sustainably-farmed sturgeon. What does that mean?
Sustainable sturgeon farming is a method that has minimal or zero impact on wild fish resources and their natural habitat. There are explicit measurements of success: one is a feeding ratio of 1:1 – meaning, one pound of wild fish used to feed one pound of fish raised. Another is creating a healthier local environment than previously existed. This means, recycling and purifying water, conserving energy, and re-introducing healthy wild sturgeon small-fry into their indigenous rivers and streams. True sustainability is defined by an entirely neutral-to-positive footprint on the planet.
We work with small-batch producers who care about the sturgeon and the wider ecosystems their operations could affect. We care about their artisan caviar makers. We care about the fate of an entire class of species that has been on earth for 250 million years—and whose very survival has been put in jeopardy in the past 30 years. We support conservation and replenishment. We believe that responsibility entails the inseparability of principle and practice.
