The volume of compensatory measures to losses of aquatic biological resources was 5,68% in 2013 year - Rosrybolovstvo
On November 19, the opening of the All-Russian conference "Increasing the efficiency of measures to preserve aquatic biological resources", organized by the Federal Agency for Fishery, took place, the press service of the department reports.
The event takes place in the Moscow region and will last until November 21. It is attended by representatives of state authorities, infrastructure and energy companies, professional expert community, as well as design and environmental organizations.
“Recently, the rational extraction of aquatic biological resources during fishing has been ensured at a fairly high level. A different situation is developing in the field of conservation of aquatic biological resources in terms of the adverse impact of economic activities. For a long period of such a “secondary” attitude to the problems of preserving aquatic biological resources and their habitat, a whole range of problems has accumulated that need to be addressed, ”said Vladimir Sokolov, Deputy Head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries, opening the conference.
“Today it is necessary to properly rethink the approaches to organizing work in this direction,” he added.
At the same time, Vladimir Sokolov stressed, it is necessary to take into account the increasing anthropogenic impact with the limited possibilities of natural ecosystems for self-purification. Thus, more and more industrial facilities with high potential environmental risks appear in the offshore areas. In addition, the fishery importance of inland water bodies is increasing due to the development of aquaculture.
Currently, enterprises, whose activities damage aquatic biological resources and their habitat, carry out compensatory measures. “However, this work can hardly be called effective. The analysis of the implementation of such measures showed that, in percentage terms, the volume of compensatory measures taken to the losses of aquatic biological resources was: in 2012, about 23,6%; in 2012 - a little more than 18%, in 2013 - 5,68% ", - stated the deputy head of the Federal Agency for Fishery.
Restraining factors are the lack of production capacity of fish hatcheries and producers, a complex mechanism for carrying out compensation measures, as well as the fact that the implementation of measures, for example, on artificial reproduction, does not apply to the statutory activities of industrial economic entities.
“We consider it important to study within the framework of the conference the existing practice of implementing measures to preserve the WBR in order to identify problem areas in the current situation and work out possible optimal solutions,” said Vladimir Sokolov.
He noted that work in this direction is already underway. Thus, the Federal Agency for Fishery has come up with an initiative to improve the mechanism for carrying out compensation measures. In particular, the Federal Agency for Fishery has developed a draft decree of the Government of the Russian Federation "On Amendments to the Regulation on Measures for the Preservation of Aquatic Biological Resources and Their Habitat", which provides for the improvement of the mechanism for carrying out compensatory measures by replacing the natural form of compensation for harm to aquatic biological resources and their habitat with cash. This is necessary in order to abolish the practice of imposing unusual activities on the reproduction of aquatic biological resources, which is causing numerous complaints.
Rosrybolovstvo is working to systematize the accounting of compensation funds and measures. A unified information system is being created to take into account all significant factors for making managerial decisions on compensation for damage caused by the WBD throughout the country. Measures are being taken to increase the transparency of this activity and its availability for departmental and public control, the representative of the Agency listed.
The conference also discusses the issues of improving methodological approaches to assessing the damage caused by the WBG, improving fish protection systems, as well as international experience in carrying out compensation measures, etc.
