Scientists continue to study the growth dynamics and biochemical parameters of the most valuable Taimyr fish.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Siberian scientists, with the support of the Arctic Development Project Office (PORA), continue to study the dynamics of growth and biochemical parameters of the Putorana char.

Taimyr char contains a record amount of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. This makes it one of the most useful fish in the world.

For half a year, the weight of fry in the cages of LLC Maltat almost doubled – from 26.1 to 40.8 grams. The scientists also studied the fatty acid composition of the muscle mass of fish. Char fry is richer than pink salmon, vendace and whitefish in terms of the useful substances content.

In the fall, they plan to conduct another expedition to lake Sobachye to replenish the stocks of Putorana char caviar. This will make it possible to diversify the genetic material of the broodstock being created and to start a pilot experiment on growing fish in commercial aquaculture.

Recall that the record content of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids was found by scientists in the Boganid char, which lives in the lakes of the Hatanga river basin and the lakes of the Norilo-Pyasinskaya system. They want to serve useful Taimyr char on the table of every Russian family: experts plan to return the northern and Far Eastern fish to the diet of the country’s inhabitants.

Earlier, northern fish was highly appreciated for its excellent taste at the annual gastronomic festival Sever. Many dishes from the fish beloved by the Norilsk people, such as smelt and whitefish, are prepared by the chefs of local restaurants.
