About Yarra Valley Caviar
Yarra Valley Caviar is an export approved boutique fresh water aquaculture farm located at the base of the Rubicon River in the Yarra Valley region of rural Victoria.
Yarra Valley Caviar is an industry leader – not only is it Australia’s only producer of fresh water Atlantic Salmon, it pioneers a natural approach to rearing and roe extraction, demonstrating a staunch belief in humane practices. In addition to Salmon, Yarra Valley Caviar also produces and harvests Rainbow Trout and Brook Trout roe for their caviar range.
The fish are milked for roe entirely by hand, once per year, under a completely natural anaesthetic of clove oil, and are then gently placed back in their ponds to spawn again the following year.
Yarra Valleys Caviar’s products are packaged on site, without the use of any additives. The result is a superb quality roe salted with premium salt to produce bright, plump and flawless caviar – bursting with flavour. The award winning products are then shipped all over the world.
Not only does Yarra Valley Caviar supply the world with its uniquely Australian Salmon and Trout pearls but it is also the proud and exclusive importer of Polanco Sturgeon Caviar from Uruguay. An exceptional product that is grown sustainably and responsibly. Yarra Valley Caviar imports both Baerii and Oscietra Black Caviar in mother tins (1-2kgs) and then mature them at a constant temperature of 2 degrees. The caviar is then repacked into smaller tins (10g, 30g, 50g, 100g, 250g) weekly and shipped around Australia with a 3 month shelf life.
