Abstract
In this communication a history of early investigations of the Caspian Sea is given, with special emphasis on the expedition in 1904 headed by N. M. Knipovich. The contribution of this expedition to the study of biodiversity of the sea, particularly newly discovered fish taxa, is examined. The specificity of the work, the new methods of collecting and examining samples, the routes of the expedition, and the contribution of each participant to the expedition are discussed. Emphasis is placed on the continuity of research conducted on the Caspian Sea. Illustrations for the paper are original photographs made during the 1904 expedition from the archive of Vasily Kononov, a grandfather of the third author. No photographs, except one, have been published before.
