Sakhalin fishermen are against the prohibition of drift-net fishing of Pacific salmons
At a meeting of Deputy Prime Minister of the Sakhalin Region Sergey Karepkin, there was a disagreement with the draft law on the prohibition of drift-net fishing of Pacific salmons in the exclusive economic zone of the Russian Federation promoted in the State Duma.
It was noted that drift-net fishing is practiced by fishermen of many countries, including the USA. In the exclusive economic zone of Russia, this method produces no more than 4% of the total catch of Pacific salmon.
According to the participants of the meeting, the prohibition of drift-net fishing of Pacific salmons, will negatively affect the Sakhalin fishery companies and families of fishermen. While industry science does not have information about any damage from drift-net fishing, the steadily growing catches of Pacific salmon in recent years indicate that the population is in good condition.
