Caviar for the Rich

Caviar is basically fish eggs (or roe), often taken from sturgeons, a large salt-water fish. Some sturgeons are more than twelve feet in length, weigh one ton, and produce up to 130 pounds of caviar.

Question: Using today's cost ($/ounce) as found on the Internet, what is the value of the caviar produced by such a sturgeon?
