0

Around two tonnes of pike juveniles were released on 21 October into Lake Jugla on the outskirts of Riga for resupply.

According to a Riga City Council release, some four thousand juvenile pike fry will find a new home in the large lake, having been raised on the “Ūdensrozes” fish farm of Stalbe parish, Cēsis district.

The purchase and release of juvenile fish is financed by the Housing and Environment Department of Riga City Council from the funds obtained by collecting a fee for the use of commercial fishing rights in inland waters and on the sea coast.

The release is coordinated with the Fish Resources Research Department of the Scientific Institute for Food Safety, Animal Health and the Environment “BIOR“. The aim of its activity is to create a scientific basis for the sustainable use of fish in Latvian waters in the Baltic Sea, the Gulf of Riga and inland waters.
