More than 9 thousand tonnes of fish were caught in 2018 in Yamal. Today the region concentrates efforts on development of aquaculture and restoration of water biological resources. “The roadmap” was approved. Sobsky fish-farming plant is gaining capacity. This year it released about 32 million grown fingerlings of whitefish species to natural environment. The center for collecting of fish eggs was created on the Sob River. It allows decreasing dependence of the region on stocking material, which is purchased in other regions. This year more than 50 million eggs of chir (broad whitefish) were collected here for the first time. Fingerlings received from them will be released to water reservoirs of Yamal next summer. This information was given by the director of the department of agro-industrial complex of Yamal Viktor Yugai on the 25th of December at the press conference.
One more fish-farming plant is on the stage of designing – in the settlement Tazovskiy for important work on restoration of population of precious whitefish species in the Taz basin.
Modernization of the fishing fleet being under use of enterprises of Yamal was started in the region successfully. 13 non-self-propelled boats were repaired at the expense of the regional budget. Next year this work will be continued – it is planned to modernize other 12 boats.
Next year the fishing branch will receive two regional grants in 15 million rubles each for development of fishery and aquaculture. This is a new direction supported by the governor of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
