HISTORY
Tsar Mikhail, the first of the Romanov Dynasty, established the monopoly on selling caviar to foreigners

A special Prikaz of the Boyar Duma was to maintain it, and the price for a Russian pound if roe was set at three silver rubles. Soon, merchants from France, Britain, Italy, Flanders, and Spain began travelling to Russian fisheries. They were reselling the caviar for almost twice the price, making good profits.

The grand fisheries on the Volga that produce roe and salt-cured fish for the whole of Russia (the fishers there are not only Russians, but the people of the East as well – Tartars, Persians, Georgians, and Armenians) are subdivided into three great periods.

They prepared for us the caviar of the biggest sturgeon in the haul. The poor thing must have weighed 300-400 kilos: its roe filled 8 barrels about 10 pounds each. Half of the roe was salted and the other half was to be eaten fresh. The salted caviar went to France.
