Frequently Asked Questions
Kaluga Hybrid Caviar, also known as Hybrid Caviar, comes from the Kaluga Hybrid sturgeon. The Kaluga Hybrid sturgeon is a crossbreed between two Amur River (Asia) sturgeon, Kaluga (Huso dauricus (f)) and Amur Sturgeon (Acipenser schrenkii (m)).
Paramount Caviar does not sell Beluga (Huso huso) caviar. Since 2005, it has been illegal to import Beluga caviar into the United States, whether wild or farm raised, due to its status of being an endangered species.
The fundamental difference is that all of these sturgeons are different species of sturgeons.
The Beluga sturgeon (Huso huso), the Kaluga sturgeon (Huso dauricus) and Kaluga Hybrid (Huso dauricus (f) & Acipenser schrenkii (m)) are different sturgeon species that each bare a unique caviar based on their environment and other factors inherent to that species.
