Nabil River, Nabilski Bay, north-eastern Sakhalin – part 1

Nabilski Bay is located on the northeast coast of the Sakhalin Island. Several rivers drain into the bay, the largest of which is the Nabil River. This is a very productive shallow bay with mixed fish fauna - here live marine, brackish-water, and anadromous species.
