The government's program on the development of the fishing industry in Tajikistan has been extended until 2020 and will carry out the following tasks:
- Increasing the area of fisheries up to 15,000 hectares
- Breeding purebred species of fish for the reproduction of endangered species
- Enforcing tighter security and more protection, especially against poaching
- Equipping pumping stations with effective fish screens
The goal of the program is to increase the number of fish in new fish farms (ponds, cages, basins and commercial fish farms), regardless of the form of ownership. There are around 30 farms around the republic similar to Abdurasul's. These farms are only solving the problem of increasing the fish population, but for fish to get acclimated in the river, system changes are also necessary. Therefore the main underlying goal is to clean the river and use water rationally.
