During the war years, the Khanty-Mansiysk District produced 32,000,000 cans of canned fish
Delicatessen products (balyk made from red and white fish) were supplied to Moscow to supply top-level nomenclature workers and were paid for under Lend-Lease. Canned fish were included in the diet of pilots and submariners, and were included in the dry ration of sabotage groups. Black fish was put into army cauldrons, and the prisoners of the GULAG were fed with fish waste , and those who caught this fish also ate them. The inconsistency of information about the total amount of canned food produced in the district forces us to turn to direct calculations based on available sources. In total for the period 1941-1945. 32 million 170 thousand 200 pieces of canned fish were produced.
