Two-year young Atltantic salmons with the average weight of 26.7 grams in the quantity of 1,436 samples have been released to the Keret River. Young salmon have been produced at the specialized fish-breeding farm by order of the branch.

This year this will be the single release of young salmon made by the Arkhangelsk Branch under the compensatory measures program.
