In the Kamchatka Territory, preliminary results of the salmon fishing season were summed up. On the east coast, the catch amounted to 24,3 thousand tons of salmon out of a total of 25,7 thousand tons. The total forecasted catch should be 171 thousand tons this year.

According to the press service of the government of Kamchatka, Yana Ryzhkova, the deputy minister of the fishing industry of the region, spoke about the course of fishing. Most of all caught pink salmon - 17,6 thousand tons, sockeye - 6,9 thousand tons. On the east coast, fishing is carried out mainly in the Karaginskaya subarea. The catch amounted to 11 thousand tons on July 18,8, of which 16,9 thousand tons of pink salmon. All fishing companies are working at full capacity, catching about six thousand tons of fish per day. This week, from 15 July, the fishery will begin in the Yelizovsky area.

However, in the region there are passing days for salmonids when fishing is prohibited. In the Kamchatka Gulf and on the Kamchatka River, they began on July 10 and will last until August 6. At this time, at least 70 thousand individuals of sockeye and pink salmon should go to spawn. There is no fishery on the West Coast so far: there are no large numbers of fish. And in the offshore area, production is complicated by the weather.
