He started harvesting the roe in 2009, and it appears as if his investment in both money and time is paying off, as today he has well over 50,000 sturgeon.
After years of participating in international gourmet food exhibitions, Mr. Han said his product, marketed under the brand Almas Caviar, was finally becoming known. This year, Almas began supplying to the top caviar distributors in the world, like Petrossian, the New York-based dealer, and laying plans to open its own stores in New York and Tokyo. It has also begun selling caviar extracts to cosmetics and pharmaceutical companies.
He is able to harvest sustainably without killing the fish, which is evidently the traditional method of harvesting sturgeon eggs.
Has anyone tried the product? Also, it sounds like a brilliant idea. Kudos to Mr. Han.
