Dried fish with a length of 35 centimeters and weighing more than kg was caught by fishermen of the Volga farm. Lenin. Fish caught in zakidnogo Seine.

Roach (lat. Rutilus caspicus) is endemic to the Caspian sea basin. These fish rarely grow more than 30 cm in length (generally from 17 to 26 cm). The winter they spend in the pits before the mouths of the Volga, and in April-may is the time of spawning.

Presently commercial stocks of roach is small and continues to decline. Since 2000, they decreased from 54 thousand tonnes to 27 thousand tonnes. The main reason is illegal fishing. In addition, fish is suffering from climate change. This spring the water level was too low, and the large shoals of roach stuck in shallow water near Astrakhan.

To multiply the populations of a record-breaking fish, it was decided to release into the wild. Before the fishermen took her a few denticles: based on that, the experts will be able to determine its age. Look at big fish-“the liar”.
