Load on the "spine"

Fish companies continue to leave Kamchatka

At the beginning of 2015, there were already 40 fishery companies that left Kamchatka, with a total volume of quotas of almost 150 thousand tons

Load on the "spine"

Alexander Saveliev

Head of the Fisheries Information Agency

The deputy prime minister and presidential plenipotentiary in the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev reacted sharply to the published rating of the investment attractiveness of the Russian regions: “The positions are bad and below nowhere to fall.”

In fact, "below" is where: the Amur region was on the 73 position from 85-ti, Kamchatka took 32-th line. However, speaking seriously, the situation is awful. "The government is creating new legislation," Yury Trutnev pointed out, "allocates additional resources, corrects state programs in order to ensure the accelerated development of the Far East. And the officials are not turning very strongly in this direction. This will not work, our actions will not be successful if they are not supported by the regions. "

And what about the regions?

Let's look at the most successful of the published rating - Kamchatka. Once, on arrival to the peninsula, the Minister of Agriculture of Russia, Alexander Tkachev, held a meeting on the development of the fishing industry with representatives of the regional administration, controlling structures, science, leaders of large fish-processing and processing enterprises in the region: "You can live in Kamchatka! And you can live well! Only you understand one thing: the fishing industry is the spine, the core of the economy of the region. The industry will develop - your region will live. There will be no fish - you can close the peninsula "...

And it is true. However, recently in this "spine" are actively developing and inflammation of the joints, and hernia, and osteochondrosis, and radiculitis, and myositis, and scoliosis ... Worse, fishery companies began to leave Kamchatka, "registering" in other regions. And this is already a compression fracture of the spine. Back in 2011, the governor of the Kamchatka Territory, Vladimir Ilyukhin, at a meeting of the Council under the presidential decree of the RF President in the Far Eastern Federal District sounded the alarm that the tax revenues from the key fishery sector in the region decreased by more than 200 million rubles. One of the main reasons he called the withdrawal from the province about ten fishing enterprises. At the beginning of 2015, there were already 40 fishery companies that left Kamchatka, with a total volume of quotas of almost 150 thousand tons. Federal legislation allows enterprises registered in other regions of the country to catch coastal fish in the waters of the Kamchatka.

What does fish industry drive from Kamchatka?

Whence this increasing load on the "spine"?

Pay attention, the governor of the Kamchatka Territory almost screams about the problems, but he is not heard. Do not hear the border guards, do not hear customs officers, do not hear veterinarians, do not hear fish officials Rosrybolovstva.

Sometimes it comes to the point of absurdity: a ship that is issued in customs terms, enters the port on force-majeure circumstances, for example, it is necessary to remove a seriously ill patient. Before, under similar circumstances, there was a simplified regime of calling at the port and exit, now - a full customs procedure. But the fresh requirement of the border guards: each vessel should have on board an additional set of individual rescue equipment to ensure the personal safety of inspectors with the warning of ship owners that the inspection of ships that do not have separate sets for inspectors will not be performed. That is, the activity of the fishing vessel will be paralyzed.

And here’s another example: in Severo-Kurilsk, the customs clearance of a ship takes three hours and costs a penny, in Kamchatka it takes a couple of days and hundreds of rubles. Naturally, the fishermen say: “I stopped walking here because it’s long and expensive here!”

"Akros" - one of the largest fishing companies of the Kamchatka Territory left the region. Together with the resource and taxes.

A couple of years ago, the general director of Akros 6 (six!) Addressed in writing to the leadership of the Kamchatka Directorate of the Rosselkhoznadzor about the inadmissibility of delays with clearance. Do we need to explain that such delays entail considerable financial losses for the company due to the idle time of transport vessels, the breakdown of the delivery schedule of vessels to the buyer, which threatens to pay a penalty, not to mention reputational losses? So, even six written explanations were not enough. Due to the fault of the Rosselkhoznadzor, the company incurred losses due to the idle during 23 of the cruise ship of three transport vessels.

The pains in the spine are also affected by imposed, unjustified port services, and a suspended situation with fishing legislation, with the forthcoming distribution of quotas, etc., etc., etc.

Of course, large enterprises that have a large fleet, considerable turnover, will be happy in any region of Russia. Who will refuse additional taxes. By the way, the Moscow region collects fees for the use of water bioresources more than Kamchatka.

Meanwhile, regional officials, according to Yuri Trutnev, do not turn very much toward business, the sea seems to be crying and literally throwing fish to consumers. The other day Sakhalin found that the coast was flooded with capelin and began to take out the trucks with trucks. Fish are now hung all the balconies, attics of houses and garages. Pisces was enough not only for people, but also for seagulls, crows, seals, and seals.
