The photos were made by Carl Mydans in April 1960 and show how a sturgeon, the tastiest fish, is caught and cooked.
Houses of fishers.
Reeds in the Volga estuary next to Astrakhan.
That’s a ridiculous amount of caviar!!
I know that the caviar harvesting method is very cruel to the fish.
Yeah, I was wondering if this was sustainable, if the fish population was remaining stable. It seems they may be over-harvesting to feed the appetite of the well-off? I hope little goes to waste, that all of the fish gets used some way or another?
