Companies catching animals for the "whale prison" in Primorye will help in their adaptation

Representatives of the All-Russian Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography, the companies that capture animals for the “whale prison” in Primorye, and the governor of the region, Oleg Kozhemyako, signed a cooperation agreement. It concerns the conservation of marine mammals and the determination of the future fate of killer whales and beluga whales kept in Sredniy Bay.

According to the document, the regional administration will create an expert group on the maintenance of mammals, help scientists in the diagnosis of the status of killer whales and belugas, as well as in creating an integrated center for the study and adaptation of marine animals. The All-Russian Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography will help to improve the living conditions of animals and minimize the risk of diseases.

According to the press service of the regional administration, the companies that caught these animals will create appropriate conditions for them, establish good nutrition and veterinary services, and microchip mammals to identify them. When the judicial act on the release of killer whales and belugas into their natural habitat comes into force, companies will participate in their adaptation.

The fate of killer whales and belugas from the whale prison in Sredny Bay determine the scientific expert group, created by the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia. Earlier, environmentalists spoke against the movement of killer whales and white whales from the "whale prison" to the not yet created Center for keeping large marine animals. Rosprirodnadzor lost the appellate court on Sakhalin. The decision of the first instance to recognize the conclusion of the state environmental review on the 13 catch of killer whales in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk in 2018 was left unlawful.
