Since April of this year the Krasnoyarsk police detained more than 3.5 thousand people for violating the rules of fishing and safe behavior on the water. This was announced today by Deputy head of the regional interior Ministry Alexei Sapience during a press conference on the preventive operation “Putina-2018”.
4 months police seized about 4 tons of illegally caught fish, including endangered sturgeon and the sterlet. After inspections brought more than 500 administrative and 67 criminal cases.
Most of the poachers caught in the most “fish” places in the North region, Turukhansk and Evenki districts. State inspectors look not only for rivers but also for heliports – one of them from a poacher managed to withdraw more than 17 kilograms of black caviar. About 90 kg of dead sturgeon fishing which is illegal.
Regular raids carried out in the regional center – in the markets and in public places. So, recently in one of the hotels of Krasnoyarsk police detained the poacher who sold 3 kg of black caviar.
At the press conference the journalists were shown the dangerous and the forbidden tools of fishing, seized from the fishermen. This so-called “samolovama” with sharp hooks that poachers set on the river, in the fish movement.
“The most terrible thing related to samolovama – poachers set them using GPS, which complicates the detection. Can you give at least three examples when such things are forgotten or cast, and these funds continue to catch and kill the fish. But there is even no production, i.e. the biological resources are knocked out in very large numbers,” – explained to journalists Alexei Sapience.
The samolovama is not only certain death for the fish that can’t get out of the trap, but also a danger to human health. Through the wounds that the fish gets in contact with the samolov, easily penetrate bacteria, leading to dangerous infections – botulism. So, eating such fish is dangerous for humans.
