Saaremaa Island

What a fishy story

Fishing is a big tradition in Saaremaa. However, with changing times, this has now resulted in over-consumption and natural habitats of fish population decreasing. To fight this an NGO was born that has implemented several intiatives, which resulted in 350,000 pike larvae being resettled into the Baltic Sea.
