In the river Zeya appeared kaluga from Khabarovsk

The first batch of fry of the Red Book kaluga in the history of sturgeon breeding in the Far East is being mastered in the Zeya River of the Amur Region. According to the Port Amur agency, juveniles were brought to the village of Beloyarovo, Mazanovsky District, from the Korsakovsky fish hatchery. 600 underyearlings (this is the name for juvenile fish that were born this year) were transported for more than half a thousand kilometers in special containers. In order for the fry to quickly adapt to their new environment, the ichthyologists gradually mixed water from the Zeya into the container.

According to the head of the Khabarovsk branch of the Pacific Research Fisheries Center (TINRO-Center) Denis Katsyuk, the experience of settling kaluga in the upper and middle Amur basin of Far Eastern fish farmers was not until recently. Specialists built special traps of canvas. According to them 20-gram juveniles, as if on a roller coaster, descended from massive tanks with water into the wild.

Kaluga fry will grow very slowly. This fish becomes mature only after 16-20 years. Adult individuals can grow in length more than 5 meters, weigh about a ton. These relatives of the Caspian Beluga live almost like people, up to 60 years. Experts hope that Kaluga will adapt to new living conditions in the Zeya River. Under favorable conditions, in the Amur region in the future a new herd of this fish disappearing due to poaching will be formed.
