In two days only 19 belugas out of 50 were loaded from seapens to the ship that will transport them. For 2 days, our vessel, for which we have to pay 60 thousand rubles (940 USD) a day, waiting in Srednyaya Bay and our representatives monitor the process, which is proceeding extremely slowly. According to information published by VNIRO today, loading will last another 2 days.
They stopped feeding belugas 2 days before loading. 6 belugas were loaded into containers on November 5th, the weather allowed them to load more animals, but loading was stopped. 13 belugas loaded today (November 6th). At any moment, a storm can hit and the entire operation will be suspended. We are very worried that everything happens so slowly.
