Many regions of the world annually accept tens of thousands of fishers, first of all it is Norway, Alaska, New Zealand, Germany. In the sphere of fishing tourism there are certain traditions according to which there are regions intended for "hunting" for fishes. Meanwhile most of fishers are ready to go also to the new region, however the few agree to change traditional subjects of fishing, and fly-fishers are especially conservative. So, "classical" catching of an Atlantic salmon and trout still, as well as in XIX century has the mass of adherents to this type of fishing. All changes of "fashion" which have happened in fifty years among amateur fishers haven't affected these steady traditions except for some at all. So, there was mass interest in catching of a steelhead salmon who is caught mainly in British Columbia and on Alaska, and in the last years on Kamchatka. In the same place catch the Pacific salmon among whom chinook and coho are considered as the most interesting to fishers. From Russian regions fishing tourism is rather well developed on the Kola Peninsula, in lower reaches of Volga, on Kamchatka. Khabarovsk Krai undoubtedly is also one of perspective territories for development of this direction of tourism.
There is a question what interesting we can offer to coming fishers? Europeans and North Americans are attracted first of all Siberian taimen, most known in the West. Not less attractive to the coming fishers can be anadromy or Sakhalin taimen. Cherry salmon can be of great interest, but this species of the Pacific salmons is still almost unknown to fishers of the western part of Russia. To the majority of the northern rivers of Khabarovsk Krai there are for spawning salmon species of fish, such as coho, salmon which can be of interest to those who like to travel to Alaska or to British Columbia. It is necessary to notice that absolutely unknown for foreign tourists are "warm-water" fishes of Amur River. Among them such species, perspective for sports fishery, as the Amur pike, skygazer, Amur flathead asp, Mongolian redfin, yellow cheek and also Chinese perch.
Here and there in Russia it is already recognized that fishing tourism on internal reservoirs can bring much more income than fishing trade. For example on the Kola Peninsula sports fishing of salmon is developed. Here have counted that one fish if to catch her, to salt and sell, can bring income about seven dollars. If the same salmon is tricked by the tourist, then she on average will cost him hundred dollars and consequently will fill up income of the region. And not only: this fish will be released and will spawn. Considerably also taimen which unlike other salmon, doesn't perish after spawning can bring bigger income. Therefore at careful attitude of fishermen to him at capture (if to him not to injure an eye and a gill) he can come across many times.
On the basis of the analysis only one type of ecological tourism it is possible to conclude that the ecotourism is a fine alternative to extensive methods of environmental management which prevail in the Far East now. In some countries (in particular, in Central and South America) have already begun to understand that the untouched, protected site of reserved jungle is a constant and inexhaustible source of means from ecological tours. At the same time the main money arrives not from sale of licenses and permissions but an indirect way: hotels are under construction, tourists spend money for transport, food and souvenirs, and local budgets receive additional resources from taxation. Many locals become guides. In order that for unlimited time to keep the nature in state, untouched, attractive to tourists, the new protected territories are created. And the having wildlife areas and reserves receive additional resources which allow to improve their protection for the account of tourists and to conduct scientific observations.
