Beluga (Huso huso) is the largest Sturgeon and the only predator in the Sturgeon family. An extremely rare fish found only in the Caspian and Black Seas whose catch does not exceed 100 units per year. Due to the immense size of the fish its roe granules are also generally the biggest. Its black caviar is highly valued due to the large granule size, their coarse texture, and their exotic and distinctive flavor. True Beluga (Huso huso) caviar has been banned from being imported into the United States since 2005 and there has been a lot of misleading information of what is being sold as Beluga caviar. We won't go too deep into the history and definition of Beluga caviar here, but a quick overview should shed enough light to be able to make an informed purchase. All of the Beluga caviar sold at Caviar Malosol is ethically sourced and of the highest quality at very reasonable prices.

- (Solo/Alone on a special dish) On a spoon - Caviar is usually served solo, staying cold on a bed of ice. It is best enjoyed with a special spoon made of bone or mother of pearl, as metal utensils are said to change the flavor. It is recommended to take small bites to fully savor and enjoy the flavor.
- As an appetizer - Caviar is primarily eaten as a starter, usually accompanied by neutral-tasting food such as buttered toast points. It can also be consumed in a blini, a Russian-style pancake, and can be combined with sour cream.
- Paired - When combining caviar with other ingredients, the flavor and texture of the eggs should be the star of the dish. A touch of crème fraîche can add a smooth contrast to the distinct flavor of the caviar.

Why Can’t We Sell Wild Beluga Caviar?
Beluga caviar is considered one of the finest delicacies in the world, but its sustainability is a major concern. In order to protect the beluga sturgeon’s population, which is a critically endangered species, it is important to minimize the human impact on their population. By selling hybrid beluga caviar, we are able to reduce our impact on the species and help ensure its conservation.
Hybrid beluga caviar is a combination of two different species of sturgeon, and it is not as rare or expensive as wild beluga caviar. This means that it is more sustainable, as it does not rely on the same resources as pure beluga caviar. Hybrid caviar is also more widely available, as it does not require the same level of care and attention as pure beluga caviar.
The quality of hybrid beluga caviar is also comparable to pure beluga caviar, so customers can still enjoy the same exquisite flavor. Furthermore, purchasing hybrid beluga caviar can help support sustainable fishing practices and promote conservation efforts.
At our store, we believe that sustainable practices are the best way to protect the environment and the species we rely on. By selling hybrid beluga caviar instead of pure beluga caviar, we are doing our part to protect these precious species and ensure their long-term survival.
