Last year, the branch released about 80 thousand juveniles of young Baltic whitefish in the Curonian Gulf of the Baltic Sea. Next year, it is planned to allocate 10 million rubles for the artificial breeding and release of juveniles of this fish.

    Besides, on November 25-26, the North-Western Basin Branch made the final release of the trout as part of activities for damage mitigation caused during the construction of the second stage of the operating water area for the transshipment complexes of the northern part of the Ust-Luga seaport.

The total cost for activities for damage mitigation caused to the facility amounted to more than 80 million rubles.

    The branch conducts compensation activities from 2012 on an annual basis. Earlier in 2020, the North-Western Basin Branch released 46 thousand juveniles of trout in Lake Ladoga and 112 thousand juveniles of annual Atlantic salmon in the Neva.
