The First Fish Day has become an official holiday of the Kamchatka Territory since 2010. This is a traditional rite, when the aborigines meet the first salmon. Indigenous people “lure” the fish into the rivers performing special magical rituals to ensure its big amount during the summer-autumn season.

Visiting the holiday of the First Fish Day is an opportunity to get acquainted with the world perception philosophy of the Kamchatka indigenous population. Difficult life conditions in the North have raised a sense of gratitude to nature and its gifts among the people.
