In the Kamchatka Territory, scientists of the Kronotsky Nature Reserve will prepare justifications for the closure of a part of the Morzhovaya Bay territory under a federal marine reserve for the protection of sea lions. They will also develop a program to protect and monitor the abundance of these marine mammals.

As EastRussia was informed in the government of Kamchatka, a large number of sea lions live on the territory of the bay. These animals are listed in the Red Book and according to some estimates their number is decreasing.

Therefore, part of the Morzhovaya, scientists of the Kronotsky Nature Reserve propose to close and prohibit fishing in this area. At the same time, at a meeting of the government on the creation of a federal reserve, questions will be raised together with the fishing industry. At the next stage, the parties will present their proposals to the head of the region.
