In the Far East illegally sold abroad, seven killer whale dolphins

Several commercial organizations illegally caught seven dolphin killer whales in the Far East and later resold them abroad. Violation of federal legislation in the field of protection of aquatic biological resources in the course of the inspection was discovered by the General Prosecutor's Office of Russia. According to customs documents, the cost of only one killer whale was 77 million rubles, and the total amount of damage caused exceeds 270 million rubles.

It turned out that the heads of four commercial organizations provided false information to the bodies of Rosrybolovka about the intention to use killer whales in cultural and educational activities and received on this basis permission to catch more than ten individuals.

Commercial extraction of killer whales is prohibited from 1982 year. Their catching in the territory of Russia is allowed only for educational and scientific-educational purposes. According to the press service of the Prosecutor General's Office, in fact, the attackers intended to sell killer whales. Seven captured individuals were kept at bases in the Primorsky and Khabarovsk Territories. Subsequently, they were sent abroad. The materials of the prosecutor's check were sent to the investigative department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia to resolve the issue of criminal prosecution of fraud.
