We are talking about the Beluga, Raskat and Aquatrade fish farms, Governor of the Astrakhan Region Igor Babushkin said at the meeting.

According to him, the companies have been engaged in fish farming for more than 20 years; they grow about 1,300 tons of fish and 15 tons of black caviar per year. Babushkin clarified that in total, the farm transfers almost 100 million rubles to the regional budget. taxes.
The governor said that the transfer of sturgeon stocks from the locks, which are leased by companies, will lead to loss of livestock and jeopardize the further production of fish and caviar.
