In the Sakhalin Oblast, a large spawning approach of the Pacific herring of the Sakhalin-Hokkaida herd is again observed. The fish came so tightly that some of them were simply squeezed by the herd onto the shore.

As told on his page in Facebook Dmitry Lisitsin, the head of the Sakhalin Ekovahta, according to eyewitnesses, a school of fish reached a length of about four kilometers along the coast, and the mass of solid fish was about 500 meters wide. Now the joint has approached the southeastern coast of the Makarovsky district near the village of Vostochnoye.

This process is normal and natural, noted Dmitry Lisitsin. Moreover, such dense approaches of herring to spawning indicate that the unique population of the Sakhalin-Hokkaida herring herd is recovering after decades of deep depression.

In April, a similar phenomenon was observed in the Kholmsk district. Locals were able to fish right off the shore with buckets.
