Indigenous peoples of Buryatia will be offered compensation in exchange for omul catch quotas

The authorities of Buryatia are planning to pay compensation to the indigenous peoples of the republic in exchange for quotas allocated for the catch of the omul. They will go to this step if Rosrybolovstvo decides to introduce a complete ban on the catch of this fish.

According to the press service of the government of Buryatia, according to the Acting Head of the Angara-Baikal Territorial Administration of the Russian Fishery Agency Roman Garmaev, now the number of indigenous communities of the North is growing in the republic, while it’s almost impossible to determine the true identity of individuals among small ethnic groups. As a result, they sell the omul, which is often produced by the poaching method.

“The implementation of traditional fishing, in our opinion, should not pursue commercial objectives. All illegally harvested fish is sold under the guise of permits obtained by the communities, ”said Roman Garmaev at a meeting chaired by the head of the Federal Agency for Fishery Ilya Shestakov.

Industrial mining of omul is now banned at Baikal. If the Federal Agency for Fisheries prohibits indigenous peoples, the authorities of Buryatia are ready to pay them compensation, since the moratorium will facilitate the fight against illegal fishing and selling of this fish.
