On the Caspian coast, several dozen dead seals have been found (the species are listed in the Red Data Book of Russia). A delegation of scientists from Moscow will find out the reasons for the death of Caspian seals.
According to experts, now there are 2 main versions of the death of seals. The first – the water area is polluted, the second – the animals got into the fishing nets. According to the scientists, two of the eight examined seals were damaged by poaching nets. All examined animals died from asphyxia – they drowned.
Scientists from Moscow are taking samples of biological material from dead animals. The results of their analyses will be ready only at the beginning of 2021.
