Osetra is a prized caviar variety that is harvested from the Russian osetra sturgeon (Acipenser gueldenstaedtii). Osetra is native to the Caspian Sea, the Black Sea, and the Sea of Azov, including their river basins. Since it is a critically endangered species, it is rarely found or caught wild, and caviar is mostly harvested from farmed varieties.
Kaluga is a caviar variety harvested from the eponymous river sturgeon, officially named Huso dauricus, which is native to the Amur River basin. Due to overfishing, kaluga is a critically endangered species, and the fish used for harvesting caviar is now mostly farm-raised.
Almas, which translates as diamond, is the most expensive caviar in the world. It is harvested from an albino beluga sturgeon (Huso huso), which should be between sixty and one hundred years old, and which is only found in the southern Caspian Sea—presumably because the area is less polluted.
