Russia’s Fishermen Drew Allowed Volume of Pink Salmon

On August 1 fishing season of pink salmon closed in the south-western area of the Sakhalin region. 

Russia’s fishing companies successfully drew the recommended volumes despite the fact that catching was limited since July 7 in order to let the fish to pass to the spawning grounds.
These measures showed a positive trend, and pink salmon population is expected to grow, but exact figures are still difficult to call.
As I learned from a recent report of the Sakhalin Fishing Companies Association press service, it was caught 2 928.58 MT of pink salmon, which exceeds recommended volume by 1.44 per cent. The total catch of salmon in the Sakhalin region amounted to 29 819.6 MT (46.5 percent).
For other species of Pacific salmon the situation is as follows:
-              1994.2 MT of salmon (allowed volume is 23.750 MT)
-              541.7 MT of sockeye salmon (allowed volume is 933 MT)
-              19.1 MT of silver salmon (allowed volume 480 tons).
So let’s wait till the end of the fishing season to see its results and learn how they will determine prices for fish products.
