- I want to note that this is not poaching, all documents for fishing are available, we catch only in those places where it is allowed. The catch rate is not violated. I didn’t even think that there were such huge catfish in Shchara. Fish usually were caught of 10-15 kg, explained Yuri Zdanchuk.

Fishermen divided the prey in half. Part of the huge fish was given to friends.
