In 2009 the whitefish bioresource in Lake Sevan has been estimated in the amount of 3000 tons, out of which 750 tons are industrial one and out of this 750, only 150 tons will be allowed to fish, as Environment Minister Erik Grigoryan said at the press conference held on the World Environment Day.
He also noted that a draft bill is being developed which will ban the sale of the whitefish in the course of whitefish fishing ban.
Reminder: till 2019 Institute of Hydroecology and Ichthyology of NAS RA set recorded the reserves of the crawfish and fish in Lake Sevan and the limits of permissible use. In 2019, the Environment Ministry didn’t announce a contest for the recording of crawfish and fish in Lake Sevan and determination of permissible limits of use. “This means that next year we won’t have any permissible fishing limit for fish and crawfish in the lake next year,” Head of Institute of Hydroecology and Ichthyology of NAS RA Evelina Ghukasyan said at the trial of the case “On Hazards Threatening Lake Sevan Having Strategic Significance for Armenia” held on 8 May.
