During 12 years Yamal intends to restore amounts of whitefish up to the level of the 80-s of last century.
This information was given by the governor of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Dmitriy Kobylkin in the answer to the question of a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press” about work of the region on preservation of whitefish, catch of which is completely prohibited in Yamal, though permitted in the neighboring Yugra.
As Dmitry Kobylkin underlines, scientists conducted titanic work. “We clearly understand that if not to restrict catch of whitefish (muksun) it will disappear in Yugra and further in the north. We should make it for future generations and for indigenous peoples, many of them are busy with fishery. They should continue the work of their ancestors”.
As the governor notes, Yamal managed to achieve for considerable progress in preservation of traditional lifestyle, owing to former heads, who considered mistakes and achievements of past years within expansion of industrial development. “There is an algorithm of the decision, it should be spread – and that’s the whole secret. Of course, each territory has its specifics. I am sure that soon everything will change, though because Magomedsalam Magomedov found time to participate in the forum”, as Dmitry Kobylkin said.
The suggestion to gather governors from all territories for sharing experience of Yamal was presented within the sitting. As Dmitriy Kobylkin answered, “We often conduct meetings with the governors. They decent and honest people, worry about things happening on their territories. Unfortunately, in many aspects time was lost; a comprehensive approach to problems is necessary to solve them.
