The Precious Roe

One of the best caviar quality can be found in the Caspian Sea.

The Caspian Sea is surrounded by Azerbaijan, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Iran, it is the largest enclosed body of water on Earth.


Fresh water flows into the sea via the Volga River and Ural River, however, the sea remains somewhat salty.

Large quantities of sturgeon live in its waters, and the caviar produced from their eggs is a valuable commodity.

Sturgeon is a type of fish that have been around for over 80 million years.

Lately very few species remain and the populations are so depleted there is little to no fishery for them. This is due to the oil and natural gas production platforms along the edges of the sea.

Catastrophes whether throwing trash into the sea or an underwater explosion are harmful, not only for humankind and the industry, but especially for the environment.

Such accidents could destroy the sea and its inhabitants.

Can you imagine a world without caviar?
