Issue Trepanga on the Russky Island

About three million young sea cups now live in the bay of Voyevoda on Russky Island. During the 4 months, experts grew them in special pools, and last week released them into their natural habitat.

All released sea cucumbers were grown in 14 experimental pools of 25 "cubes" each. In July, the company's specialists took about a hundred adults from the sea; invertebrates spawned in captivity. 15 million larvae settled on special plastic collectors and grew on them until the end of October.

The environment in the room, where the pools are located, is as close as possible to the natural. The water intake is made in the middle of the round bay, on the shore of which there is a base. Fed the juveniles with a special composition that is close to natural food.

On Monday, the company's specialists released about 2 thousand individuals, on Friday - even more than a million. And about four million young trepangs overwinter in the pools - they will be released into the sea in the spring, when they reach the "necessary standards for a viable individual."

“Within the framework of the program for the development of the fishery complex of the region, subsidies are provided for enterprises that grow aquaculture. So, for one viable fry of sea cucumber, companies receive three rubles. For example, "DalStam", when we sign all the necessary documents, can receive only about 15 million rubles. These works are carried out in accordance with the Law on Aquaculture, which entered into force on January 1 of this year. A release act is drawn up - it is filled out by employees of the regional administration and the Primorsky department of the Federal Agency for Fishery. We plan that by 2017 more than 17 thousand tons of aquaculture facilities will be grown in the region, - says Sergey Kulaga, head of the aquaculture department of the regional Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Biological Resources. - Trepang is known to have medicinal properties. I think it will be used to make medicines as well. Scallop, as everyone knows, is a nutritious gourmet product. There will be mussels, there will be kelp - agar-agar is made from this alga ... "

DalStam has been growing mariculture in Voevoda Bay for several years, and in 2011 this site was taken over for official use by the company. Not only sea cucumbers are bred here, but also scallops, mussels, oysters. All in all, there are 56 such enterprises in Primorye that inhabit 124 sites with a total area of ​​23,5 thousand hectares. This year, breeders have released about 5000 tons of various products in the seas of the region.
