On the Tugur River, the Wild Salmon Center chases answers about Russia’s disappearing giant taimen.

For more than a decade, we’ve been working in the Russian Far East to protect both Sakhalin taimen and Siberian taimen, the latter a vulnerable Eurasian trout that feed on adult salmon and reach up to 140 pounds. And while we’ve succeeded in protecting some of the most important, pristine Sakhalin and Siberian taimen habitat through protected areas in the Tugur and Koppi rivers, we still don’t know much about the resident taimen there.
