Plans for a new fish farm could see Wakefield in West Yorkshire become the caviar capital of the UK, according to a report in Wakefield Today.

The 14-hectare fish farm is due to be built on an area of wasteland in Calder Vale, Wakefield, and will be run by Able Partnership, an organisation who provide work for recovering drug addicts and disadvantaged young people.

The sturgeon farm is thought to be one of the first in the UK and will see the importation of large numbers of Siberian sturgeon from farms in France. These will be reared on worms grown on the site.
