The farming of caviar is highly regulated by the authority which is in charge of this due to the fact that overfishing has resulted in extinction of such fishes and sturgeon is on the verge of extinction. This is an endangered species which is listed in CITES which looks after the protection of killing and exports of such species of animals. In Latvia, a revolutionary caviar farm has come up with a technique where the anglers do not have to kill them, as they can procure the required material from fishes, which are alive.
Therefore, no more killing of the fish is required as this breakthrough process helps in saving the fish from extinction. The best part is that with this technique better form of the item is expected as with the maturity of the fish the food item gets tastier. The practice of fishing this wild sturgeon has been a common practice for many years from the Black Sea as well as Caspian Sea for the highly priced food inside.
However, the irresponsible way of overfishing has resulted in the extinction of this fish and rise in price of sturgeon caviar. Both male and female fishes are killed in the old process, but with the enlightening breakthrough, new process has given rise to a ray of hope for the well-being of this fish. Current study shows that at least 20-30 years are needed to bring back the population of this fish to the required amount.
It has been a rule for some time now that all the pack of this product should have a 20-digit code which means that they are certified by CITES for selling and they are not a product of black market where dishonest anglers sell them. There must be some tight process like this in order to control overfishing of this fish and co-operation from international organization is required to do the same before it is too late to control. The technique used in Latvia has influenced many people to follow the same in order to save the fish community from extinction when the taste of this food would be a thing in the chapter of history.
