The Government of the Russian Federation has approved new costs to calculate the extent of poaching damage.
For example, the cost for the Atlantic salmon damage has increased up to 11 times – from 1250 RUB to 13675 RUB. The cost for such popular in Mezen species as lamprey – 5685 RUB, grayling and pike – 925 RUB, ide and bream – 500 RUB, dace, crucian and perch – 250 RUB. The cost for the salmon roe has also raised. The half-price for the corresponded fish species will be added to each roe kilogram.
It should be also noted that penalty size for illegal fishing can be even higher when, for example, the fish is caught during the closed season or on the area where the fishing is limited.
