Full Answer

The Caspian Sea is a lake, not a sea. It is called a sea because the Romans who discovered it found it to be salty. The countries of Iran, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Russia border the lake.

The Caspian Sea is a place of great oil and gas production. It is also home to a large population of sturgeon, and the caviar from sturgeon eggs is highly sought after in culinary circles.
