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 effectiveness 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 is held in the Moscow region and will last until 21 November. Representatives of public authorities, infrastructure and energy companies, professional expert community, as well as design and environmental organizations take part in it.

"Recently, at a sufficiently high level, rational seizure of aquatic biological resources in the implementation of fisheries is ensured. A different situation develops in the sphere of conservation of aquatic biological resources in the aspect of unfavorable impact of economic activity. For a long period of this "secondary" attitude to the problems of preserving aquatic biological resources and their habitat, a whole set of problems that need to be solved has accumulated, "said Deputy Head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries Vladimir Sokolov, 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 capabilities of natural ecosystems to self-purification. So, in the sea areas there are all new industrial facilities with high potential environmental risks. In addition, the fishery importance of inland water bodies is growing 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 performed 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.

Constraining factors are the lack of productive capacities of hatcheries and producers, a complex mechanism for carrying out compensatory measures, and the fact that the implementation of measures, for example, on artificial reproduction, does not belong to the statutory activities of industrial economic entities.

"We consider it important to study in the conference the existing practice of implementing measures to preserve the EBR so that in the current situation, identify problem areas and work out possible optimal solutions," said Vladimir Sokolov.

He noted that work is already under way in this direction. Thus, Rosrybolovstvo has taken the initiative to improve the mechanism for carrying out compensatory measures. In particular, Rosrybolovstvo developed a draft resolution of the Government of the Russian Federation "On Amendments to the Regulation on Measures for the Conservation of Aquatic Biological Resources and Their Environment", which provides for the improvement of the mechanism for carrying out compensatory measures by replacing the natural form of compensation for damage to aquatic bioresources and their habitat by a monetary form. This is necessary in order to abolish the widespread practice of imposing unnatural activities on the reproduction of aquatic biological resources by companies.

Rosrybolovstvo is working to systematize the accounting of compensation funds and measures. A unified information system for recording all significant factors is being created to make managerial decisions to compensate for the damage caused to the FBG nationwide. Measures are being taken to increase the transparency of this activity and its availability for departmental and public control, the representative of the Agency said.

The conference also discusses the improvement of methodological approaches to assessing the damage caused to the FBG, improving fish protection systems, as well as international experience in carrying out compensatory measures, etc.
