Vologda Region Governor Oleg Kuvshinnikov visited a fish rearing facility constructed in Belozersk District.
The town of Belozersk was always connected with White Lake (Beloe Ozero). Although smaller than Lakes Ladoga and Onega, White Lake is a pivotal link between those two lakes and the Russian heartland.
Mr. Kuvshinnikov was impressed by the company "Aquaculture" that breeds trout, whitefish and broad whitefish.
Active development of fish farming in the Vologda Region began in 2014. Only one company was operating at that time. Today there are 19 fish rearing facilities throughout the region. Last year, Vologda’s fish farmers produced more than 600 tons of fish. This year, the companies aim to produce a thousand tons.
