Issues related to renewable natural resources and compensation for damage to resources as a result of economic activities are in the focus of Russian and foreign scientists. The article presents domestic approaches to compensation for harm caused to water bioresources and their habitats. The purpose for the research is to conduct comparative analysis of two existing Russian approaches to compensation for harm caused to water bioresources: as a result of economic activities (construction of facilities, pipeline stringing., etc.) and illegal fishery of water biological resources (poaching). The authors conduct analysis of open data on water biological resources linkage, fishery yield and value characteristics of compensation through artificial reproduction of water bioresources as the main direction of natural resource recovery. The authors use data on the Arkhangelsk and Murmansk oblasts, Republic of Karelia, Komi Republic. They cover the issues of damage compensation from illegal extraction of water bioresources with use of the fixed charge approach. It has been established that business entities which compensate for the damage caused to natural resources resulting from the economic activities bear greater costs than those engaged in poaching in these regions. In this case, the same natural resource is affected. The authors have developed measures to improve state control in the sphere of compensation in the Russian Federation. It is appropriate to have a unified approach to ecosystem recovery regardless of the type of activities undertaken
