Raid measures to prevent and detect illegal fishing will continue

In the Rivne region, environmental inspectors confiscated 20 nets with a total length of 2,000 meters in one day, and in the Cherkasy region, offenders-migrants who did not register for military service received summonses to the ranks of the Armed Forces.

Fishing gear will be given to volunteers for making camouflage nets, and then given to military units, according to the State Environmental Inspectorate of Polissya District and Head of the Department of State Environmental Supervision (Control) in Cherkasy region Alexander Poznyakov on Facebook.

In the Cherkasy region, during the week of June 6-12 at the Kaniv HPP, environmental inspectors and police drew up 18 reports for violating the Fisheries Rules. According to representatives of the military enlistment office, some of the displaced fishermen who were not registered received summonses and were drafted into the Armed Forces.

"The spawning period continues - and measures to control compliance with fishing rules continue," said Poznyakov.

In the Rivne region, raids with the participation of the Polissya District SEI and the public of the Boremel and Demydiv OTGs of the Dubna district took place on the water surface of the Khrinnytsia Reservoir on June 9.

The message also noted that since the beginning of spawning, namely on April 11, environmental inspectors of Polissya district managed to:

  • bring to administrative responsibility in the form of fines 128 people;
  • to calculate losses in the amount of more than 170 thousand hryvnias;
  • to remove 105 prohibited fishing gear (nets) with a total length of 5,000 meters;
  • transfer 8 cases to court.

"Raid measures to prevent and detect illegal fishing of aquatic bioresources will continue," the statement said.
