The juveniles were raised at one of the largest fishing enterprises in the region by order of Nornickel.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Once again, a large batch of Siberian sturgeon fry, a fish listed in the Red Book of Russia was released into the Yenisey river.

This time 200 thousand fry were released in the Prut shallow waters near the Yeniseysk city. The juveniles were raised at one of the largest fishing and fish processing enterprises in Krasnoyarsk, Maltat, with which Nornickel has been cooperating since 2016.

During this time, the sides released more than 1.2 million sturgeon fry into the Yeniseiy. The total investments of Nornickel in the project amounted to about 45 million rubles.

“Artificial stocking is essential for the conservation of fish populations as anthropogenic factors continue to affect river ecosystems. Such ecological programs are most often aimed at sturgeon production, since this valuable fish is endangered and is listed in the Red Book. In the last century, it was mined in hundreds of tons, and, despite the ban on fishing, the number is recovering very slowly”, the Nornickel explained.

According to the Nornickel Polar Division industrial ecology department head Yuri Semenov, environmental safety and maintaining the diversity of wildlife are priorities for the company.
