Taimen of the Vavay Lake
Information on the organization on Vavay Lake of raids for protection from poaching by nets has arrived. It is relevant for preservation of the Sakhalin taimen as there is a set of certificates on rather safe condition of local population. All of taimens in the submitted photos are caught in the lake by rods and released on native environment. We hope that it is made with appropriate care.
Idea of crisis of Vavay's population has developed by results of an expedition of 2011 with A. Yurchenko and D. Didenko's participation. Then they couldn't catch by seine juveniles for carrying out the genetic analysis.
