There will be more fish on Yamal. The construction of the port of Sabetta did not go unnoticed for the ecosystem of the district, but the potential damage was calculated. Rosrybolovstvo prepared a program to restore the fish population in advance. And its final stage is the straightening of the bed of one of the tributaries of the Taz river.

There are more than one hundred rivers and streams on Yamal. The since – only one of them, but it plays a crucial role in the number of populations of whitefish species of fish. From a height of several hundred meters, you can see how densely Packed the bend of the river is. Over the decades, the rapid current has washed away the banks, and fallen trees have become an insurmountable barrier to everything that moves on the water.

Now the fish has a way to bypass the blockage: a new channel has become a freshly dug channel. The quality of its implementation is accepted by the interdepartmental Commission: Rosrybolovstvo, fish protection, scientists, and representatives of the agricultural industry.

Special attention is paid to the quality of the straightened riverbed by the customer. Usc Most built the port of Sabetta. And the “construction of the century” does not pass without a trace for nature. According to the law, it is necessary to compensate for the damage caused, for which a whole program was developed. It was executed by the Federal Agency for fisheries. The first step is to restore the sturgeon population, for which the Abalaksky experimental fish breeding plant was connected.

But even such volumes will not help restore the population. You can’t do without reclamation works. After consulting with scientists, two reservoirs were chosen for their conduct – a lake in Ugra and a river in Yamal.

According to local residents, now there are very few fish in Pokolka: in the fall, a little Peled is caught. Experts are sure that with the opening of a new path, the population of whitefish in this river will grow many times. It remains to wait a couple of years.
