Agricultural enterprises in Purovskiy district completed their preparations for summer fishing in time and have already started fishing. All the vessels were launched to water. This season about 350 people will go fishing.
“For the present day the list number of fishermen in agricultural enterprises is 347 people. It is planned to catch 1469 tonnes of fish. The majority of fishermen work on boats with motors. All of them are fully equipped. In Samburg everything is ready for navigation, vessels and fishing depot ships are launched to water”, said Mikhail Bystrov, the director of the district office for development of agro-industrial complex.
This year fishing campaign was started much earlier than usual. The rapid clearing of rivers and lakes from ice allowed fishermen to finish preparing for summer fishing in early June. In the south of Purovskiy district tundra dwellers already started examining fishing sites. All agricultural enterprises formed fishing brigades. They have everything necessary for fishing. Tundra dwellers will deliver their catch to trading posts and fishing depot ships, where fish will pass primary processing and freezing. Brigades of the polar state farm “Purovskiy” will start fishing later than the others. Now they are checking fishing gear, preparing transport. Active fishing is taking place in the agricultural community “Icha”.
“50 fishermen are involved at all fishing sites, we have three in total. Each site has refrigerators, freezing chambers, and fish is delivered there. There we freeze and leave it for storage until transportation. This year we planned to catch 350 tonnes, and we have already caught the third part”, said Oleg Batyrev, the director general of the agricultural community “Icha”.
The fishing season will last till the end of navigation. The season will pass quickly; the brigades do not have time to relax. According to the district administration, the catch in brigades of the agricultural enterprise “Icha” is not small: at the trading post “Chaselskoye” they have already caught 33 tonnes of fish.
