Other Media | SalmonBusiness: Russia to invest in the Arctic and will provide government aid for salmon brood facility
RUSSIAN FEDERATION
Tuesday, February 02, 2021

Investment planned in Murmansk region.

In a press release on Monday, Russia Prime Minister Mikhail Misjustin has signed a decree related to the plans for six large state-backed projects in the Russian Arctic. One of these projects is a salmon and trout breeding facility in the Murmansk region.

According to the government, the state subsidy for each of the projects will be up to 20 per-cent. One of the prerequisites is that the project in question costs at least 300 million rubles, which is around EUR 3.2 million.

It's rather blurry on the purpose. If it's for restocking, they might have a point. Due to the permafrost melting, rivers have changed the last few decades and as everywhere, salmon stocks decline. Not at the same rate we've seen in other parts of the world, but they decline nonetheless.

If, on the other hand this is for consumption purposes and the scale grows beyond of what is environmentally acceptable, they are signing another death warrant and the Kola river will be the first victim.

Firefly ..Indeed I suspect the pic is a 'stock' photo and the report broad in its terms. On land - RAS? At sea-Open Net ?
Does anyone know anything substantial on this matter?
