4 A Fishing Cemetery In Once Prosperous Fishing Village

A Fishing Cemetery In Once Prosperous Fishing Village

Posted on November 21, 2011 by


Up to the 60s, Teriberka had been a large fishing center, but now the village is slowly dying out. Besides, local people pollute the environment which is so beautiful that once you see it, you’ll always want to come back. See it yourself:

In Teriberka, there is a guarded operating port.

This is its abandoned part.

In fact, local people are prohibited from fishing by quotas and other administrative bans.

They want people to pay to get a permit for fishing.

On the one hand, locals are not used to it because they have always gone fishing for free. On the other hand, even if they wanted, they just don’t have this much money for it.

At the same time, these are border guards but no fishing control men, who are dealing with illegal fishing.

Some say about a fishing program they want to implement with Norwegians, but in reality the village is slowly dying out.

Old ships are rotting away…

    Wherever something ends a new thing starts. Our lives do not stay the same, they change with time. The only constant thing in life is change. We either accept change or we suffer.

    Sounds just like it is in the western world, although the fishing permit prices might need checking if they are overly prized.

    And if they are planning a program with Norwegians, they should know better.. They, too, have their own quotas, and permits to pay, so why should it be any different for the locals?

    very sad to see but this is not just a Russian problem, the UK has empty fishing ports as well

    It is the big “factory” ships that make these fisher villages die. Almost all fish products are processed out on the ocean or it is sent to China to be processed and packed and returned to the supermarkets in Europe and USA.
