Fishing in inland waters significantly differs in terms of production, seasonality, scale, methods of production and organization of fishing, equipment and technologies. In addition, fishing in inland waters is characterized by insignificant volumes of catch of aquatic bioresources and other socio-economic significance. As a rule, this type of activity is occupied by small organizations that use seasonal labor with temporary employment, which, at the same time, are of significant socio-economic importance for the local population. The article presents the characteristics of the situation in the field of industrial fishing in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) and the main problematic trends of the industry. The purpose of the article is to show the main obstacles to the sustainable development of inland fisheries in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) in fresh waters. As a result of the study, measures are proposed to solve the problems. The management should be focused on the rationalization of fishing to increase profits per unit of production assets used, as well as on attracting highly qualified specialists to fishing, that is, increasing the investment attractiveness of this industry. With this approach, inland fisheries can contribute substantially to increased food security, poverty alleviation, livelihoods, human well-being and ecosystem function.
