Georgia builds fishery to save endangered freshwater trout
Wednesday, February 1Georgia is taking action to save an endangered trout species indigenous to the country.
To this end, companies involved in Georgia’s energy sector have agreed to finance the construction of a fishery with 300,000 GEL (about $110,704/ˆ103,525*) in an act of social responsibility.
The project was designed by Georgia’s Ministry of Environment and National Nursery, which began work on the project back in September 2016.
A fishery was built in Georgia’s Sachkhere municipality where approximately 130 trout were reared in the initial stages of the project. A fish-egg incubator has been installed at the facility and a water filtration system will be installed there in the near future.
The new fishery will further develop and contribute to efforts to protect trout in the country. (Agenda.ge)
