What’s reputed to be one of the world’s largest indoor sturgeon facilities opened at Abu Dhabi in December. Emirates AquaTech Caviar Farm LLC announced the launch of Emirates AquaTech, a land-based recirculation facility covering around 56,000 square metres which will produce Siberian caviar and sturgeon meat under the Yasa Caviar brand-name.
Initial projections indicate a capacity of some 35 metric tonnes of caviar and 700 tonnes of sturgeon meat per year.
The company claims that its full-lifecycle operation uses patented technology to breed fish in a system designed to allow for fish farming that is both economically viable in the Emirates and environmental-friendly and sustainable in the high-temperature climate.
Yasa Caviar and all other Emirates AquaTech products are to be marketed exclusively by Garamond International, a company with offices in Abu Dhabi and Barcelona, Spain.
