ST. PETERSBURG, April 29. /TASS/. The issue of salmon drift-net fishing ban has been solved, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday.
"It was a difficult decision on drift-net fishing. We never expected such resistance. But the issue has finally been solved," Putin said at a meeting with members of the Council of Legislators under the Russian Federal Assembly (parliament).
"We explained to our foreign partners, including Japanese, that it is not about them but rather about regulation of this activity, about ecology and preservation of our reserves," he said.
Drift-netting is a common fishing method used by commercial and artisanal fishing boats drifting with free-floating nets of up to 50 kilometer-long used in oceans to snare fish by their gills.
