PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, October 6 (Itar-Tass) — Border guards in Kamchatka have prevented the illegal transportation of a large batch of salmon caviar. In the Karaginsky district of the Kamchatka Territory they detained more than 3.2 tonnes of the product that the poachers tried to take for sale from the Karaga village by a Mi-8 helicopter.
The press service of the North-East Coast Guard department of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) told Itar-Tass on Thursday that on October 5, a helicopter of the Vertical-T company landed near the village of Karaga. A border guard detachment that arrived at the helicopter’s landing site found two residents of the town of Yelizovo who were loading into the Mi-8 helicopter caviar in special containers. The poachers failed to produce any documents for the cargo.
Police officers seized the caviar and placed it in safe custody. The investigation is underway.
On the previous day - October 4, border guards jointly with the police, FSB and the Prosecutor’s Office officers detained a batch of red caviar weighing about 18 tonnes near the village of Ossora in the Karaginsky district. The product was being prepared for illegal exporting from the region on the Gritan fishing vessel. The investigation into this case is also in progress.
