Fish place

On Sakhalin will create an innovative biotechnopark

Fish place

Marine biotechnopark, the project of which is proposed by the government of the Sakhalin region, in 10 years will be able to bring more than 2 billion rubles to the regional budget.

The presentation of the marine biotechnopark took place at a thematic meeting held in Khabarovsk by the Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation - Plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev. Commenting on the feasibility study of the project, the Governor of the Sakhalin Region, Alexander Khoroshavin, said that its implementation would more than triple the stocks of scallop and trepang to the existing volumes.

“In the future, other business entities will also be able to use the created infrastructure. That is, we will form the core for the development of mariculture in the Far East basin. Today several companies have already confirmed their participation in the project as its residents. They have experience and the necessary competence in this area, ”A. Khoroshavin noted.

It is assumed that the Sakhalin Development Projects Agency will be the managing organization of the project. Scientific partners of the Technopark are the Association for the Development of Aquaculture in the Sakhalin Region, Sakhalin State University, and the Yantai Biotechnopark (PRC), the largest such facility in the world.

"By the end of this year, the documents for the project will be ready, and we will send materials to the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia in the established order. Thus, the creation of a marine biotechnopark on the western coast of Sakhalin is an absolutely real project, ready for implementation, "the press service of the government and the governor of the Sakhalin region quotes A.Khoroshavin.

Ilya Timokhin, Deputy Director of the Investment Department of the Ministry of Investments and External Relations of the Sakhalin Region, revealed EastRussia.ru some details of the future Far Eastern center of marine biotechnology. According to him, on the basis of fish-breeding areas there will be conditions for young people to achieve a presentation. And also a processing center, which is a complex for processing products received at marifarms. In the future, on the basis of the processing center, capacities for the production of biologically active additives will be created. He considers the centers on export certification and struggle against diseases of hydrobionts not less important part of the project.

"The main element of the biotechnopark is the most costly and complex from the technical point of view - the center for the reproduction of hydrobionts. The location of its disposition is supposed to be south of the western coast, the village of Pravda. But the main advantage of the project is that aquaculture facilities based on planting material can be grown at any fish-breeding site of the Sakhalin-Kuril water area. First of all, these are the water areas adjacent to the Kurile Islands, Anivsky Bay, Nevelsky, Kholmsky and Tomrainsk districts, "- said I.Timokhin.

According to him, the biotechnopark is “a heavy capital-intensive production subject to enormous risks, especially those related to the biology of the sea.” Therefore, the first five years, taxes in the budget will be only contributions to social funds.

"However, if you consider the long horizons of planning, then for 10 years, by 2024, the budget will receive 2,7 billion rubles. new taxes. Directly on the basis of the biotechnopark there will be 318 new jobs, and in adjacent industries - another 2 thousand! ", - I.Timokhin is sure.

He stressed that the total amount of private investment for the first stage of the project, a complex for reproduction of young and processing center, will amount to 1,9 billion rubles.

"Order 20% will be own funds, 30% - funds of portfolio investors, 50% - loans in banks. But while all this is in the negotiation stage. By the end of the summer, all issues of corporate relations will be settled, "the official explained.

I.Timohin assures that there are already investors. The main ideologist of the project is the innovative company "Ruth-2009". Several years ago, an association for the development of aquaculture in the Sakhalin Oblast was established, which also does a lot for the scientific and organizational and personnel support of the project, and all its participants are ready to be residents of the technopark. Investors will be able to rely on tax preferences, compensation of interest rates on leasing and credit. This support, according to the calculations of the Sakhalin government, will be able to shorten the payback period of the project for a year and a half.

Federation also offers its assistance to investors in the fishing industry. As EastRussia.ru was told at the Federal Agency for Fisheries, the development of aquaculture and mariculture is one of the priorities, and the Federal Agency for Fishery is working on supporting this area.

“The Agency has prepared proposals on the rules for subsidizing loans attracted for the construction and modernization of fish processing infrastructure, fish storage facilities and the development of commercial aquaculture (commercial fish farming),” the federal agency told EastRussia.ru.

Natalya Zubarevich, Director of the Regional Program of the Independent Institute for Social Policy, noted that marine bioresources are a serious competitive advantage for the Sakhalin Region.

“This is a good business project, there is a sale for it,” the expert is sure. - Large business in the region could take up the implementation of this project, but it would be ideal to attract the Japanese. Unfortunately, the federal center strictly controls all the contacts of the regions with Japan and can prevent this by putting policy ahead of the economy. ”

At the same time, the Sakhalin region has enough resources to participate in the creation of a biotechnopark: in 2013, the budget deficit in the region was only 2% with the average Russian average in 8%, and spending on the economy - 22%, which is 2% more than the average for Russia .
