1200 artificial spawning nests were installed within the framework of ecological campaign of PJSC Zaporizhstal “Save the Dnieper together”. Installation of nests was held near Otradnoe village in the Volnaya gill
Install artificial nests is extremely important, because on the natural spawning grounds the percentage of eggs conservation is very low. There the eggs often dies and this is due to water drop, weather conditions and number of other factors. With the help of artificial spawning nests, the survival rate of eggs increases and the number of roach and other fish species in our local waters increases.
