The program for the restoration of this species’ population was discussed at a meeting of the head of state with the head of the Federal Fisheries Agency Ilya Shestakov.

He said that the set of measures made it possible to achieve good results in increasing the number of omul. "If the given pace continues, then in 2023-2025 it will be possible to reopen industrial fishing," said Ilya Shestakov. The ban on omul fishing has been introduced since 2017.

Steven Seagal took part in the restoration of Baikal's aquatic bioresources. The star of Hollywood, together with specialists from the Baikal branch of the Federal State Budgetary Institution “Glavrybvod,” released more than 2 thousand omul in the lake. Vladimir Putin conveyed to Steven Seagal words of gratitude.
