Historians say that estrogen fish was first discovered by Iranians in the fourth century in the Caspian Sea (northern Iran).

In fact, the Persian word ‘’KHVIYAR’’ is the word that inspired the modern term we know and love. The Persian Empire control the sturgeon trading for many years and prior to the global demand for oil, caviar was likely the most valuable and desirable export in IRAN to other countries in the world. As most caviar connoisseurs know, the name “CAVIAR” only applies to roe from Sturgeon fish.

Other fish eggs like trout roe or salmon roe not considered caviar.
