Default Proposals for a Luga River Salmon management plan

Proposals for a Luga River Salmon management plan
‐ Russian Implementation of the HELCOM Baltic Sea
Action Plan and Actions Connected to Biodiversity and
Wild Baltic Salmon

February 2010

Extract:

The river Luga River in Leningrad and Novgorod Oblast is crucial for the Russian implementation of
the HELCOM Baltic Sea Action Plan regarding biodiversity and wild Baltic salmon. The Luga River has
great potential to become a healthy and qualitative strong river for wild salmon, and the Luga is by
far the most important wild salmon river in the Gulf of Finland in this respect. A more comprehensive
description of the Luga made by Russian scientists is available in a separate CCB Report.1 There are
several positive facts about the river system. The water quality is still overall good, there are no
major dams in the main river and there are today no industrial sites that potentially threaten the
river system.

However there are severe problems, especially for the wild salmon. In the Luga the reproduction of
the wild salmon is decreasing and illegal fishing is quickly decimating the Luga salmon stocks.
Estimates show an alarming low rate of returning wild spawners to the system, maybe as low as 500
salmon per year.
