Orca hunters received fines of millions
In Primorye, killer whale hunters who were put in the “whale prison” will have to pay multimillion fines to the treasury. The relevant court decisions that were adopted in June of this year entered into force. The companies failed to appeal them, in total they have to pay more than 150 million rubles.
Judicial acts have been published so far in only two cases, but according to EastRussia, the head of the public organization Sakhalin Ecological Watch Dmitry Lisitsyn, all decisions of the first instance on imposing fines were left unchanged. For violations committed when catching 11 killer whales of Sochi Dolphinarium LLC, a fine of 37,6 million rubles was imposed, LLC Oceanarium DV - 56,4 million rubles, Afalina LLC - 28,2 million rubles, White Whale LLC - 28,2 million rubles.
The amount of the fine was calculated by the court based on the average market value of the killer whale. It includes a fee for catching aquatic biological resources, the cost of feeding in the adaptation process during the thirty-day period, the cost of animal care services while in the adaptation center.
