Teriberka ( _ru. Териберка) is a village ("selo") in Kolsky District of Murmansk Oblast, Russia. It is located on the Barents Sea coast, at the mouth of the Teriberka River.


As a settlement, Teriberka was first mentioned approximately in 1523. Eyewitnesses from that time period confirmed the appearance of permanent Russian settlers. By the end of 19th century, it was well-developed: having a church, a lighthouse, and a hydrometeorological station (the first one on the Murmansk coast).

Names of the geographical features of the area: Cape Deploranskogo ( _ru. Мыс Деплоранского), Zavalishin Lip ( _ru. Губа Завалишина) and others, relate to the Great Peter's expedition ( _ru. Большая Петровская экспедиция) which worked in this region prior to this time.

In the beginning of the 20th century, Teriberka had well developed cod and shark fishing businesses (undertaken mostly by Norwegians who owned a factory and a store). By the end of 1920s, the first collective farm was organized in the village; it included a dairy farm and a reindeer herd in addition to the fishing boats.

Before World War II, fishermen and diary farm workers of the collective farm were honored several times for their achievements and were sent to the VDNKh in Moscow. A shipyard construction in the village of Lyudeyny began around the same time.

Teriberka developed quickly after World War II. In the 1940s–1960s, this village contained two fishing farms, two dairy farms, a poultry farm, a 2000-head reindeer herd, an American mink breeding farm, two fish processing facilities, as well as shops and warehouses of the White Sea base of the "Goslov" (government sponsored skilled workers organization). Repair facilities of the shipyard were working at their full capacity and were being expanded. Active construction of housing and public organizations was underway. The village had a stadium, a community center, workers' clubs of the shipyard and fish processing facility, a Young Pioneers club, two schools (elementary and secondary), a boarding school for children from the coastal settlements, one inpatient and one outpatient hospital, and an ambulance station.

Teriberka became the district center, and it was growing and developing at a very fast rate.

The downfall began in 1960s, when the district was transferred to jurisdiction of the town of Severomorsk. As ship tonnage increased and fishing fleets were able to travel more easily in the open ocean, the coastal fishing business became less important. A newly constructed fish processing complex in Murmansk put smaller processing facilities in Teriberka out of business.

During the process of the "enlargement", the collective farm "Murmanets" was liquidated along with its mink farm. "Goslov"'s White Sea base fell apart, the rein-deer herd was transferred to the village of Lovozero and the fish processing plant was shut down because large fishing vessels were not able to enter the river from the ocean.

In the 1980s, a school of salmon was barbarically destroyed during the construction of the Teriberka River hydroelectric plants. In the 2000s, the village was again subordinated to the district instead of the town of Severomorsk.
