The Caspian Sea is the largest inland body of water in the world and accounts for 40 to 44% of the total lacustrine waters of the world. The coastlines of the Caspian are shared by Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Turkmenistan. The Caspian is divided into three distinct physical regions: the Northern, Middle, and Southern Caspian. Sturgeon inhabit the Caspian Sea in great numbers, and yield roe (eggs) that are processed into caviar. Overfishing has depleted a number of historic fishes including economic exhaustion of the tuna fish.
۱۴th meeting of the Association of the Caspian Sea State Universities in Daghestan-Russia
In recent years overfishing has threatened the sturgeon population to the point that environmentalists advocate banning sturgeon fishing completely until the population recovers. Therefore, many of the marine science research and teaching institutions, shipbuilding factories, fishing and aquaculture, marine ecology and oil exploitation, etc. were formed in the former Soviet Union.
