The fish-breeding farm on the Sob River is unique for the Arctic. At coming to the full project capacity it will release about 140 million whitefish juveniles every year.
This information was given by the first deputy governor of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Aleksey Sitnikov in Tyumen on the conference on modern state of breeding complex of Western-Siberian fishery basin and main directions of its development. Its participants discussed a role of fish-farming in preservation of water biological resources, normative and legal regulation of development of aquaculture, its scientific support and significance of compensatory measures.
The fish-breeding farm was built due to joint financing of the regional government and the company “NOVATEK”. Last year the farm worked in the testing mode – technical capacities of the enterprise were tested. 2 million and 500 thousand juveniles of the muksun and 250 thousand juveniles of the peled were released to the Ob River. This information was given in the department of agro-industrial complex, trade and foodstuff of Yamal. The farm was input to operation on the 14th of March this year. This year it is planned to release 3 million juveniles of the muksun, 2 million juveniles of the broad whitefish and 12 million juveniles of the peled.
As Aleksey Sitnikov underlines, this is the first farm in the region, which will manufacture products to restore population of precious species of fish. He outlined the suggestion of the government of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug to the Federal Agency for Fishery – on the federal level to foresee activities on spread of such practice on the territory of Western-Siberian fishery basin. There is another suggestion of Yamal to the agency – to scrutinize the opportunity to allocate a part of compensatory funds of the project on building of objects of the seaport of Sabetta to development of the existing fish-breeding base on the territory of the region.
