Acipenser the company and its history
Thanks to a staff that is constantly committed in the product research and innovation, Acipenser ensures Caviar of superior quality.
The company inception
Our fish farm was born in the 80’s as a troticulture.
In 1996 it was completely converted into sturgeon-culture thanks to the cooperation with Mr. Dalla Rosa Carlo, member of the Italian Sturgeon-culture Commission.
Current Acipenser General Manager.
The production of the first caviar begins
Some tanks were widened and extended and then the fish farm was intensified.
Nowadays, on a plot of about 10 hectares mainly occupied by raceways 1 km long, more than 200.000 “sturgeons” swim in the 80 tanks of our fish farm.
