Experimental Fish Farm

Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant

Visited in 2015

This site was a fish farm prior to the disaster. The buildings were re-used as a radiological laboratory until 1996. Located alongside the picturesque shoreline of one of the man made cooling lakes a number of rusting fish pens still remain in place along its banks.

Before the accident in 1986, the fish farm consisted of two buildings, the laboratory-household building and the hatchery where they were breeding fish. In the 90’s the base belonged to the Chernobyl Centre for International Studies. In 2000 the Chernobyl radio-ecological center took over the buildings. Over time, the amount of research and work was reduced, and eventually the base was abandoned in 2008. Tools and equipment were taken out by the scientists, the rest finished off by looters.
