This video explores a unique project directed by the WWF to conserve taimen in the Amur-Heilong River Basin. Taimen are the largest member of the salmonidae family. These fish are excellent indicators of the overall ecological health of the Amur River. Saving this aggressive predator requires the coordinated efforts of conservationists, government policy-makers, anglers and the local communities. Conservation partners tag and research taimen. They also work with local villagers to stymie poaching. Interestingly, sports fishing is a critical component to saving the taimen. International anglers bring significant economic resources to local communities. With the help of a government-monitored catch and release program, local people see taimen in the water as far more valuable than taimen on a trophy shelf or a dinner plate.
