Employees of the State Agency for Environmental Protection and Forestry, together with the public fund “Clean Issyk-Kul”, cleaned the fishing grounds on the southern coast of the lake. This was reported in the press service of the department.

According to him, more than 100 orphan fishing nets of various sizes were collected from the surface. Their total length exceeds 10 kilometers.

“The low price and wide availability of the nets mean that fishermen do not remove them even after the end of the catch. Abandoned nets are dangerous for migratory birds and other inhabitants of the lake, ”the press service of the department noted.

The underwater and coastal zone of Lake Issyk-Kul is cleared of garbage, solid household and other waste. In total, more than 3 tons of garbage were collected. It was transferred for recycling to Ihsan Eco-Group LLC in Balykchy.
