Acadian Sturgeon and Caviar was founded in 2005 shortly after Cornel Ceapa and his wife Dorina immigrated to Canada from Romania. This family-run business is passionate about sturgeon with Cornel holding a PhD in Sturgeon Biology specifically in the Sevruga species.
The Ceapa’s work hard, love what they do and take pride in building a sustainable business. It starts with artificial spawning, taking care of the larvae and juveniles, harvesting the fish, preparing the caviar, smoking and packaging the sturgeonmeat, all while managing all the daily operations
Using their knowledge and passion for sturgeon, they are able to set new standards in fisheries while supporting the people around them. Acadian Sturgeon’s strategy of developing an aquaculture business is one-of-a-kind. Their goal is to produce a high-end, sustainable product that is readily available to the foodservice and retail market.
