This number is dedicated to Russian-Japanese fishery relations. The very first Japanese fishermen came to the Bering and the Okhotsk Seas hundred years ago--in 1897.
How have these relations developed and how will? What problems and ways of their solution each side see today, yesterday and will sea tomorrow? This is about in articles "All of them are gunsmithes and poachers...", "Fish" generals overdriven our salmon into Japanese nets", "What's for sale in Tokyo's "kitchen"", "ODU is ODU even in Japan", "Businesslike ethics in Japan", Not only bears live on Iturup".
Special block of materials in this number--"Ocean and Mankind: union of common sense"--dedicated to Fourth North Rim Fishery Conference held in Tokyo, where our representatives were retained by Russian Fisheries Committee. In this number we publish the report of deputy director of USA Council of Monitoring of Mastering of Fish Resources in the Northern Pacific region doctor Clarence G. Potzke--"Frontier stocks of pollock of the Bering sea: conflict or cooperation?" and report of general president fishing company "AKROS" Vladimir V. Vorobyev--"In the interests of Russia and not only...".
In this number, like in previous, we continue the discussion of necessity of oil and gas extraction on shelf of the Bering and the Okhotsk seas, one of the most bioproductive regions of the world--"Oil: chance or sinecure".
Among publications of this issue of the magazine there is a material about carvers in bone of Magadansky area "In traditions of past", problematical articles about destiny of Russian fishermen "Fated to slavery", historical essay, dedicated to 250th anniversary of start of orthodoxy and bicentennial of birth of Saint Innokentiy of Alaska and Siberia.
