Arctic Roe of Scandinavia's sturgeon farm is located in the province of Småland. It was once upon a time a border zone between the Swedish and Danish kingdoms. When the Danes left, certain local inhabitants got displeased and rebelled against the strict rule of Swedish King Gustav.
The rebellious past has been transformed in to a friendly present. The municipality of Markaryd, where Arctic Roe has its facility, has numerous times been recognized as Sweden's most company friendly and entrepreneurial municipality.
The usage of water by industrial clients in Sweden is a serious issue due to strict environmental laws. The quality of caviar to a large extent depends on the water quality, and our fish farm meets the demands imposed on it by the authorities.
We keep the fish inside in a re-circulating aqua system (RAS) and on top of that we apply very far reaching cleaning solutions of the outgoing water. Inside in the system of pools housing the fish with a three-stage complex cleaning system, water circulates with a speed of up to 180 m3/hour. An automated steering and control system monitors PH, oxygen, temperature, salinity and pressure. Arctic Roe of Scandinavia also separates mud particles and sterilizes the outgoing water before it is released to the municipal sewage plant. That prevents any contacts with the wild fish living in the nearby river Lagan.
Top Quality Manufacturing
The starting permit to farm sturgeon was obtained in 2016 from the local county administration after a review process encompassing several months. Somewhat later Arctic Roe was, by the same county administration, classified as a prime producer of food items
In 2018 Arctic Roe was approved by the Swedish Agricultural Board according to the CITES rules (permit to trade with goods from endangered species). Thereafter, in December 2018, the company's food processing unit was inspected and authorized by the Swedish Food Inspection (Livsmedelsverket). The animal health status is checked at least once per year by an assigned veterinarian who visits the company. Food safety issues are controlled by the Swedish Food Inspection, which also visits the plant from time to time.
What people say about us
"My parents were from Volga region and I grew with regular three liter cans of Astrakhan black caviar in our fridge. Black caviar from Russia is good, but black caviar from Sweden is even better – and a lot more sustainable."
