Canada fish farm revives rare sturgeon

Research team helps bring back Breviro Sturgeon which nearly became extinct a century ago.

    A fish farm in Canada is bringing back a rare breed of sturgeon, which is considered a delicacy especially for its caviar, that almost went extinct about a century ago.

    The farm's research team has spent 15 years helping the Breviro Sturgeon, which has existed since the age of dinosaurs, flourish again in captivity.  

    It is the only farm in the world licensed by CITES - the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species - to sell caviar that comes from Breviro Sturgeon.
