Representatives of the indigenous peoples of the North are sure that their usual way of life will suffer if fishing restrictions are imposed.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Representatives of the indigenous minorities of Taimyr sent a letter to the Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation Dmitry Patrushev and the head of the Federal Agency for Fishery Ilya Shestakov. According to TASS, residents of Taimyr are asking not to introduce new restrictions on fishing on the Pyasina river in the north of the Krasnoyarsk region.

According to the document, the Krasnoyarsk branch of the All-Russian Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography recommended to allow fishing on the Pyasina river only for research purposes and set its permissible volume at 71.45 tons.

“Our fellow countrymen will not be able to extract the volume of aquatic biological resources in lateral reservoirs in 2022, which was usually mined in the Pyasina river itself in previous years. The way of life, historically arranged in certain fishing areas, will suffer… It is necessary to leave the extraction of aquatic biological resources in the fixed fishing areas on the Pyasina river”, the letter says.

The indigenous peoples of the North were offered to fish in other reservoirs near Norilsk.

“They are at a great distance, ichthyologists have not worked with us for 25 years, there is no information about what is in these rivers”, said Marita Eydugey, chairman of the Arylal community. “In general, it is not clear on what data the institute is based so that we would fish in these rivers. All our reservoirs have been bought out and contracts with the Taimyr Municipal District have been concluded for ten years, but we participated in these auctions in order to conduct industrial fishing there, in addition to traditional fishing”.
