Ekovahta: pink salmon fell through on Sakhalin

The public organization "Ecological Watch of Sakhalin" said that pink salmon in the region failed. From June 1 to July 15, industrial fishing for pink salmon continued on the southwestern coast of Sakhalin. According to its results, the fish were not found in spawning grounds, nor in the catches of fishermen.

According to EastRussia, the head of Sakhalin’s Ecovakhty Dmitry Lisitsyn, according to scientific forecasts, more than one thousand tons of pink salmon were expected to be caught, but the regional commission on anadromous species of fish allowed to catch more than nine thousand tons.

For this, 27 fishing companies put up 60 fixed netting up to 3 kilometers long. The commission did not introduce fishing restrictions, nor were days passed for salmon to enter the rivers. The result of the first stage of Putin on Sakhalin was less than 200 tons of pink salmon - 2% of the allowed volume.

The main problem is that the spawning grounds of most rivers in the south-west of the island remained empty. Specialists of Sakhalin Ecowatch have surveyed most of the most important spawning rivers in Tomarinsky, Kholmsky and Nevelsky districts. Of the 21 rivers, pink salmon was found in only two - in Krasnoyark and Chernaya Rechka (on both are LRZ reproducing pink salmon).

There were no pink salmon in all other spawning rivers. There were no fish either at the entrance to the estuary, or on vacation in the pits, or on spawning grounds, and the ecologists also did not find traces of bears and poaching. Ekovakhta is preparing appeals to law enforcement agencies with a request to give a legal assessment of the actions of officials.
