PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, March 15 (Itar-Tass) — The captains of three Russian vessels have been fined for violation of fishing regulations during the catch of Alaska Pollack in the Sea of Okhotsk, the press service of the North-East coast guard department of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) told Itar-Tass.
Inspections conducted on the Mlechny Put (Milky Way), Cape Rubicon and Bagration vessels in the fishing area exposed the facts of exceeding the norms of the Alaska Pollack roe extraction and processing of this fish. This could mean that the fishermen were deliberately getting rid of part of the catch, because based on studies for each fishing area and time of fishing scientists clearly defined the quantity of roe that can be obtained by processing of a certain amount of caught fish, the coast guard department explained.
With the total catch of over 85 tonnes of Alaska Pollack the three vessels produced more than 2.5 tonnes of caviar of this fish.
The violators have been fines to a total sum of more than 1 million roubles. All the products made ··from Alaska Pollack caught with violations of fishing regulations have been confiscated for the state.
