Caviar Poachers Arrested

Police have arrested more than 800 people suspected of poaching red caviar during the salmon migration on the Amur River in the Russian Far East, Itar-Tass said Tuesday.


Police and fishing inspectors recently have confiscated dozens of kilometers of fishing nets, five tons of fish and two tons of red caviar, said Amurrybvod fishing company spokesman Vyacheslav Belyansky. Many other poachers may still be operating on the Amur River and its tributaries, he added.
