Near the coast of Sakhalin and the Kurils will be released about 250 million eggs of salmon

The Sea of ​​Okhotsk this year abnormally quickly cleared of ice. By the beginning of May, it was covered with ice by only 39% of the mean annual values ​​for this period, said Mikhail Kuznetsov, head of the Sakhgidromet marine forecast department.

Now the width of the so-called ice belt - the edge of the eastern coast of Sakhalin - is three to four times less than the annual average.

More recently, the Okhotsk Sea coast of Iturup Island has cleared of ice, there was no melting long enough. The ice pressed to the coast was condensed due to the western winds. And for a long time, by the way, they prevented the vessels from getting to the port of Kurilsk.

As explained by the director of the Sakhalin-Kurilsky territorial administration Rosrybolovstva Vladimir Samarsky, so early melting of ice this year ensures that the release of salmon is not necessary to delay, the process will begin on time: the third decade of May - in the south and south-west, in June - in the northern Factories. This year in the sea off the coast of Sakhalin and the Kurils will be released about 250 million eggs of salmon
