Sakhalin Taimen

Sakhalin taimen is a rare protected species of the salmon family.

In 2007, the Company started a programme to identify taimen habitats in the river systems along the pipeline to ensure that production activity will not put the existence of this species at risk.

At the first stage, the distribution and the number of young taimen in several rivers were studied. In 2011, a new phase was launched under the programme, based on the basin-oriented approach to the study of ichthyofauna, including the Sakhalin taimen.
