Is caviar hurting the sturgeon and beluga populations?



  1. 0 Votes

    Demand for caviar has severely damaged populations of many sturgeon species – including the beluga sturgeon in the United States (it’s a fish and not a whale, despite the name). Unfortunately, studies have shown that many people actually prefer caviar from rare and endangered sturgeon species over caviar from more common species, for the very reason that it is rarer. This means that farming sturgeon for caviar may not accomplish very much if we are trying to save endangered species. To save endangered sturgeon, it may be necessary to put a complete ban on harvesting them for caviar.
