I have just begun seriously to work on the Magadan article as a result of my general interest in Kolyma. While it is comparatively easy to find references to the Stalin forced-labor camps and indeed the entire Soviet period, references to the 1990s and since are difficult to find. If anyone can contribute to more recent developments, I think the Wikepedia article would be more objective. Contribute directly or write to me at ipigott at yahoo dot com
There wasn't really all that much happening as far as the developments in the 1990s go. The bottom line is that the economic activities pretty much stopped, and people started leaving the city in hordes. Not much to boast about, really.
Anyway, this site has a bit on the most recent developments in the city, and the City Administration website has some forecasts about the city's future. If you can read Russian, you'll hopefully find these two resources at least marginally useful. Is there anything specific you are looking for?—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 21:34, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
The population plummeted from 151,652 (1989 Census) to 95,982 (2010 Census). Certainly the article should explain the reasons behind this large and notable decline. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 11:52, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
Fishing production, although improving from year to year, is still well below the allocated quotas, apparently as a result of an aging fleet
So they have the fish, they have the workers, but they don't have enough ships to keep up? Any reason why they don't invest in ships if the fish and workers aren't the issue? Were the ships given at a discount years earlier? Or has ship building/buying more costly now? Why?
