China pays great attention to the restoration of the population of endangered sturgeon species
The environmental situation in China largely wants the best. The air is terribly dirty, the rivers are littered with sewage, the soil is strewn with waste. All this is a side effect of the growing economy and insufficient financing of environmental areas. There is a lot of money in China, but they are not enough for everything. And when suddenly there were resources to grow and release a large batch of sturgeon
fry into the Yangtze river, the media immediately blew the information that in China everything is good with the purity of the rivers and that in China everyone is doing nothing but breeding fry and releasing it into the muddy, dirty waters of the Yangtze river. In the lower reaches of this dull, full of sewage water of the river did not survive, but in the upper reaches, where the river is not so wide and industrial effluents smaller fish are still there, but its not enough. The local population loves fish, and the population on the banks of the river lives tightly, so that the additional stocking of the upper reaches of the Yangtze river in General is a good thing, but the environmental situation is likely to not correct. It`s like a dead poultice to do, the river is more of a dead body of water than a living one.
The news that the fish breeders released 100 thousand adults and fry of Korean sturgeon
in the Yangtze river flew all the Newspapers and online publications. I guess it`s good when first rare species of sturgeon
in China completely destroyed the quiet, and then pathetic the population is reduced. When the fry was released, there were even representatives of the government and couriers from different protective organizations. Released fry not far from the city of Irbin in Sichuan province. In addition to fry, the Chinese government has launched a program that should explain to the local population that nature must be respected, that fish can not be caught by poaching methods and that every house should have a septic tank, so that waste water does not fall into rivers and ponds.
The Chinese decided that in order to explain to everyone how to behave in nature and how to protect the wealth of the Yangtze river it will take only 23 days, it is for such a period that the explanatory company of environmentalists is aimed. A special ship will run along the coast of the river entering towns and cities with explanatory lectures on ecology. This program is subsidized by the Ministry of agriculture and rural Affairs, as well as the Ministry of water resources and the Ministry of transport of China. Everything takes place under the auspices of the wildlife Fund.
The death of this type of sturgeon
began in 2000, when a cascade of hydroelectric power stations appeared on the Yangtze river, which cut off the places where the sturgeon
multiplied. And fishing on a particularly large scale has exacerbated the problem. The extension of river navigation are also influenced by the desire of the sturgeon
to reproduce and as a result, the Korean population of sturgeon
plummeted. This type of fish was in China in the list of endangered species. As they say, until the thunder comes, the man is not baptized. So in China, while there is no problem or the problem is minimal, no one is engaged in it, and as everything worsened before the disaster, all the problem is solved and praised their solutions.
