On Sakhalin, a huge amount of herring and capelin approached the shores, which local residents catch with their hands and buckets. This is not the first time that herring has been washed ashore this month.

The head of Sakhalin Ekovahta Dmitry Lisitsyn in his Instagram posted a video of a huge amount of herring that ended up on the shore in Aniva Bay, near the town of Korsakov. And in the Tomarinsky district, capelin is thrown ashore. At the edge of the sea, the sand is strewn with hundreds of fish carcasses.

In early April, VNIRO scientists Explained Mass Ejection herring on the coast of the Kholmsky district of the Sakhalin region. This is common in post-spawning fish. Unlike Pacific salmon, far from all herring dies after spawning - this is due to its overcrowding.
