AFK "Sistema" wants to do amateur fishing in Kamchatka

AFK "Sistema" wants to do amateur fishing in Kamchatka

AFK Sistema wants to start organizing amateur salmon fishing in Kamchatka. Due to the influx of tourists from other regions, it will become more difficult for residents of the peninsula to obtain a fishing permit.

As the RBC, AFK Sistema was registered on February 26, 2021 by Management Company Kamchatka Project LLC. A businessman from Vladivostok Nikita Melnikov became the general director of the new legal entity.

As the president of the All-Russian Association of Fisheries Enterprises, Entrepreneurs and Exporters (VARPE) German Zverev noted, in Kamchatka, in most river sections, commercial fishing of Pacific salmon is carried out, 79 areas are intended for amateur fishing.

Deputy Director of Norebo Management Company Sergey Sennikov said that tourism associated with amateur fishing in Kamchatka has great prospects and is popular not only among Russians, but also among foreigners, although due to infrastructure difficulties such a business requires large investments. Some fishing spots can only be reached by helicopter; the cost of such a trip for a week is at least 180 thousand rubles.

At the same time, the access of residents of the peninsula to amateur fishing is limited - special vouchers are needed, which are sold by commercial companies that lease fishing plots from the state. Major players in this market are the Big River travel agency and the Glavrybvod FSBI subordinate to the Federal Agency for Fishery. The cost of a one-time ticket is from 200 to one thousand rubles.

Kamchatka amateur fishermen have repeatedly appealed to the authorities with complaints about the lack of vouchers. The regional government recommended to ensure the distribution of vouchers in the ratio of 85% - to residents of Kamchatka, 15% - to visiting tourists.

According to German Zverev, a new player can enter the recreational fishing market in Kamchatka, either by buying one of the existing players (except for the Federal State Budgetary Institution "Glavrybvod") or by obtaining a new fishing site for use. The third option implies participation in competitions in 2028. Last year, on the territory of the Kamchatka Territory, according to the regional Ministry of Fisheries, 34 enterprises were engaged in the organization of amateur fishing.
