Smelt fishing season ends in the North.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Dozens of the Polar capital residents spent the May Day weekend fishing smelt. Now the season of “cucumber” fish is just ending in Taimyr – this is how the healthy delicacy is called because of the peculiar smell.

The weather pleased the northerners, and many went fishing with their whole families. The children were interested in digging in the holes and helping adults.

Spring smelt fishing has been a favorite pastime of Dudinians and guests of the Arctic since the 80s of the last century. The fish can be caught from the Yenisey almost in the center of the city, right at the embankment. During the high season, hundreds of fishermen can be seen on the ice.

Smelt has an exquisite taste and is very nutritious: 100 grams of this fish contains 17 grams of protein (for comparison: 100 grams of chicken breast contains 23 grams of protein). Smelt contains calcium, potassium, zinc, ferrum, cuprum, magnesium, selenium, molybdenum, nickel, phosphorus, all B vitamins, retinol, tocopherol, PP, amino acids. 40 grams (two tablespoons) of smelt roe contains the daily requirement of vitamin D for an adult.

In the Taimyr reservoirs there is also a fish that is called the most valuable in the world: the Boganid char. Now scientists are working to breed it for sale. And read the recipes of dishes from healthy Taimyr products in the Taste of the North section.
