Russia has suggested to introduce a 5-year moratorium on sturgeon catching in the Caspian Sea within several months, RIA Novosti writes. Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Iran are ready to support the initiative. “We are expecting a meeting of heads of the Pre-Caspian countries in the nearest months. There is also an agreement to add two issues to the final protocol of the summit. Introduction of the 5-year moratorium on catching sturgeon in the Caspian Sea is one of them,” head of RosRybolovstvo (Russian fishing authority) Andrei Krayniy said. According to him, the 5 year moratorium will help restore the population of sturgeons to the level sufficient to resume commercial fishing.
