REPOST: Following the illegal capture of 90 belugas and 11 orcas, The State Expert Commission of Rosprirodnadzor confirmed that the 2019 Russian capture quota has been denied. The total allowable catch (TAC) for belugas and orcas was found to be completely unjustifiable and considered to be excessively high by experts.
In addition, the expert committee recommended to only approve capture permits under scientific purposes and exclude captures for cultural and educational purposes. This is very important as it means that even if the TAC materials are resubmitted to The State Environmental Review, neither orcas or belugas will be captured for use in dolphinariums. The good news doesn’t end there. A new law has been approved, banning the export of captured animals to other countries. The fate of the 101 captured cetaceans being held in Srednyaja Bay, Russia will be decided once the investigation concludes.
