RN-Yuganskneftegaz Releases Over 41 Million Fry of Valuable Fish Species into Yugra’s Rivers

05 October 2022

In 2022, RN-Yuganskneftegaz, Rosneft’s largest production asset, released more than 41 million fry of valuable commercial fish species, including 3.9 million fry of the red-listed Siberian sturgeon, into water bodies of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District-Yugra.

Preservation of the environment is an integral part of the corporate culture of Rosneft. The Company aims to achieve leadership positions in minimising the environmental impact and ensuring the eco-friendliness of its production, implements several comprehensive programmes for the preservation and restoration of natural resources.

RN-Yuganskneftegaz has been participating in artificial reproduction of aquatic bioresources since 2019. The enterprise has released more than 280 million fry of valuable fish species into Yugra’s reservoirs since then.

Siberian sturgeon, muksun, whitefish and peled fry were raised at the fish factories, which offer optimal conditions for fish reproduction, on the oil industry’s order.

The fry were released in pre-selected favourable locations, such as small channels with sufficient nutrition and mild water flow. Fry there gain weight and enter the larger rivers.
