Fishermen in Russia's Primorsky Territory suggest certifying all types of fisheries in Russia
Fishermen in Russia's Primorsky (maritime) Territory (also known as Primorye) suggest certifying all types of fisheries in Russia and making an inventory of ships engaged in each type of fisheries. Speakers at the ongoing 2nd international Nature Without Borders ecological forum here voiced these initiatives, which are intended to help eliminate poaching in the Far Eastern seas, on Thursday. Speakers also suggested a new measure to curb illegal fisheries. Fishermen believe that it is essential to arrange a satellite-aided monitoring of fisheries by providing each trawl with catch-weighing sensors and by reading out data on the amount of fish caught from satellite. Sergei Konotyuk, general director of the Nakhodka BAMR, one of major fishery companies in the Far East, pointed out, "With the aid of the suggested measures, we move over more quickly to implementing the principles of sustainable fisheries when fishery operations may go on for any length of time". "In the process, the health of ecosystems will be preserved, an utterly large size of fish stocks will be maintained, and damage from our actions will be minimized," Kononyuk said. The international Nature Without Borders ecological forum has drawn more than 600 delegates from Russia, the United States, Japan, the Republic of Korea, and China. Participants in the forum discuss a wide range of ecological problems that are of current concern to Pacific Rim countries, such as the use of marine bioresources, recycling, and the formation of a common ecological space in the Asia-Pacific Region.
