In Krasnoarmeisky district during commercial fishing net was caught two sturgeon. An unusual catch was noticed by the journalists during the press tour organized by the Committee of hunting and fishing.
The employees of LLC “Volga the net” got a network with the next catch. Among the fish I noticed two sterlet, aged two and three years. Sturgeon brought in the Red Book and does not apply to commercial fish. Currently, 90% of the population is maintained by artificial release of fingerlings into the river. In 2017 in the Volga produced 170 thousand fish. This year has already launched a 92 thousands of fish.
“Resource recovery is required to annually produce 2 million pieces of fish. Sturgeon can spawn only after seven years. With this approach it will be possible to recover fish stocks and to include it in the list field” — said the head of the Department of aquatic bioresources of the Committee of hunting and fishing Pavel Kolpakov.
The fishermen admitted that these catches are very rare. Caught fish released back into the river.
