Update of fishery departments is very important for Transcarpathia, - the Deputy Head of Transcarpathian Regional State Administration Viktor Mikulin said. "Nowadays, there is a big corruption component in this industry, some representatives of the fisheries fo not fulfill their functions properly. In the region, there are more than 600 bodies of water, our rivers carry water to western countries. Transcarpathian inspectors are often involved in corruption schemes, not only for fishing but also the extraction of sand and river gravel. And this is a very big problem for Transcarpathia not only because of the flood situation," - the Deputy Governor said. Viktor Mikulin expressed hope that through complete update of the fishery, corruption component in it would be minimized.
