The catch of salmon in Kamchatka exceeded 130 thousand tons

In Kamchatka, the preliminary results of the Putin season 2014 were summed up. The volume of salmon catch in the region exceeded 130 thousand tons, said Deputy Chairman of the Government of Kamchatka Krai Vladimir Galitsyn.

“Industrial fishing has ended in almost all regions of Kamchatka. Separate areas in the Karaginskaya subzone, separate groups of fishing grounds on the east coast in the Avacha Bay area are also fished. On the western coast of Kamchatka, we have closed the sea fishery, there is an active fishery for coho salmon in the rivers, ”said Vladimir Galitsyn.

According to the deputy chairman, industrial fishing will be completed approximately in 2 weeks. The total catch can amount to about 135 thousand tons for all types of fishing.

“Unfortunately, western Kamchatka didn’t work on pink salmon this year - the catch there amounted to about 50 thousand tons. The remaining 80 are on the east coast, which, in theory, should not have fished in an even year. All the predictions that science gave, except for pink salmon on the west coast, came true in full. We have a good situation in the development of sockeye salmon, chum salmon, coho salmon, ”said Vladimir Galitsyn.

Putin's 2014 year did not become a record for the region, but it brought good results. The peninsula is still the leader in terms of salmon fishing in the country.

"Of course, taking into account measures to limit imports, which are undertaken by the state, taking into account the need to saturate the domestic market, I would like to repeat the way to the 2012 year, when there were a lot of fish in the entire Far East. Then they caught almost 500 thousand tons. Now the figure is half that, - said the deputy chairman. - Science warned that fish approaches depend on different reasons: there are peaks, there are falls. On average, Kamchatka caught on 50 and 70 thousand tons, in 2007-2008 there were 107 and 115 thousand tons. I think that this year there will be about 135-136 thousand tons for all types of fishing - this is more than a good indicator, "said the deputy chairman.
