Fishing Rules Again

The officials are still deciding our fate … Putting the law into practice. How much can be stored and exported. About catch rates.

This topic excites, and the fishing community will excite for a long time, and this topic was re-developed on August 7 in connection with a meeting led by the head of the Federal Agency for Fishery Ilya Shestakov, which was held in Astrakhan. It was about the implementation of the recently adopted Federal Law “On amateur fishing.”

The meeting was attended by representatives of Russian fishing organizations, with a dozen governors and even deputies of the State Duma of Russia. Why was Astrakhan chosen for this Russian forum? Probably due to the fact that for many ordinary fishermen these places are considered to be some kind of fishing Eldorado, an earthly fishing paradise, where every fisherman would like to go during his lifetime … But not everyone succeeds. It takes time and relatively large financial investments. Despite the legendary fame of these places in the lower Volga, the Astrakhan fishermen themselves do not live very well, if we talk not about fishing, but about a banal “household”, from which the Russian citizen can not escape, wherever he lives. And these are shamefully low salaries, pensions, for which it is impossible to die at the current rates of “grave diggers”, or rather the mafia on death. It is clear that Astrakhan fishermen always solved these problems, as the situation dictated to them, when you live in places of concentration of all fish, including sturgeons. And this is caviar and, therefore, money for the same household waste. You will not be full of fish. No matter what they say, when you live on the river, you will find an opportunity to take from it. If not caviar, then at least just good fish, legally permitted tackle. And then – to sell, so that there was something to pay for a communal apartment and so on. But with this article of income, judging by the statements at the meeting in Astrakhan, a “shortcut” could soon come out to the locals. It seems that the officials are going to adopt one of the laws, according to which now it will be possible to fish only for food or for pampering on the principle of “caught-let go.” If you want to sell fish to your neighbor, then buy a patent in advance. When the law proposed by the officials is adopted, then it will not be possible to sell surplus catch for no reason, as this will be considered an enterprise and must be taxed by law and confirmed by a patent. Officials regularly look into our leaky pocket and try to fetch at least something else out of it … At the same time, they built a separate socialism for themselves and their relatives. The state stubbornly does not look into their pockets, despite the fact that there are such salaries, benefits and allowances that the general secretaries of the Central Committee of the CPSU did not even dream of. And also pensions for which you can safely fly on vacation to Monte Carlo on the Cote d’Azur. Astrakhan, of course, is not the Principality of Monaco, but one could live, but according to the law of conservation of matter – if something arrived somewhere, then something disappeared somewhere. And it decreases more and more in the pockets of citizens with an increase in the benefits and salaries of officials. At the same time, they touchingly care about our moral character, so that, God forbid, we do not decompose morally, if suddenly the Russian budget is all right with the money.

They live on fish and in the villages of the flood zone of the Cheboksary hydroelectric station. There, no matter how work has been done since the atrocities of the “reformers” Gaidar and Chubais, there is none. Volzhans, of course, will, as before, set up nets and sell fish, but they themselves will no longer do this, meaning – selling fish. They will be handed over to dealers who come from the city and buy fish at a cheap price. The law will be circumvented anyway, but there will be more reasons for corruption at the local fish inspection.

What else was said at the meeting with the head of the Federal Fisheries Agency Ilya Shestakov?
About catch rates, which in Astrakhan is 10 kg per day. But fishermen from other places can also catch 10 kg of roach, roach, bream, silver bream, common carp, pike perch, bersh, pike, tench, sabrefish, black herring, asp, silver carp, grass carp, rudd, crucian carp, freshwater perch and Sintsa. Or – 1 specimen of fish of this weight. You can catch one catfish and 50 crayfish.

The question is solved according to the norms of fish caught in 2-3 days
How much can be stored and exported, if, for example, you live on vacation somewhere on the Volga island. Ilya Shestakov insists that even if you live a week by the water and fish, the norm should still be maintained daily. That is, this point, although it was introduced into the rules, but, apparently, is still in limbo.

The issues of fines for fishing and the improper operation of a small vessel were also discussed. In a word, officials still decide our fate, although the fishing law has already been passed.
