The Bureyskoye Reservoir in the Far East is known as the Amur Sea. It appeared in 1979, during the construction of a hydroelectric power station on the Bureya River in the village of Talakan. The reservoir is partly situated within Khabarovsk Krai.
The place is very popular among local fishermen: it is rich in trout and grayling. Pike fishing is conducted in winter and summer. However, in recent years, fishermen are concerned about the drop in population numbers. The problem is that spawning sites of Siberian salmon and pike are damaged. Also, the breeding of Amur ide, smelt, and other fish species is underway in the Bureyskoye Reservoir.
Hunters are also frequent visitors. In the forests along the shores of the reservoir there are grasslands of red deer, wild boar, otter, mink, sable, and Siberian weasel.
Holiday camps have been established for visitors, who come here to relax.
