The Kurile lake is a unique natural object because the greatest population of brown bear inhabits the area of the lake. Nowadays the total number of the population is 1000 animals. The unique ecosystem of the Kurile lake was formed and is still preserved because of the reproduction of the greatest herds of the valuable Pacific salmon – the red salmon. Every year 3-10 million spawners come to the Kurile lake. This abundance of fish attracts a lot of predators, including bears.
