Herrings - small inhabitants of Caspian Sea

Baku, March 28, AZERTAC

The herrings are represented in the Caspian Sea and its tributaries by two genera: shad and kilkas. Most of Caspian shads are marine forms spending all of their lives in the sea and rivers.

Three species enter the Volga primarily (black-back shad, Volga shad and to some degree, common kilka). The kilkas are at the top of the Caspian fish species list in terms of reserves and catches.
