Our history

Since the beginning of the 1930s human impact on the ecosystem of Lake Sevan has been significant, particularly in its impact on water levels and the unsustainable use of fish stocks and lake resources. The water level recession caused the diminishing of natural spawn places of Winter trout and Bojak. 

These endemic fish species are extinct, while Gegharkuni and Summer trout have survived in very small quantities. In recent years complex measures have been taken by the government to increase water level and restore fish stocks, which are very important for the restoration of Sevan’s ecosystem.  It’s not a secret that since the beginning of the 1940s, the quantity of Sevan trout has been decreasing; and in 1978 it was listed in the Red Book of the USSR as an endangered species. Nowadays, despite the fishing ban, the trout is deprived of its natural self-reproduction opportunity.
