The Fishing Fleet Shipowners Association has calculated the fishing industry's need for a new fishing fleet. It is estimated that the catch volume of about five million tons can be provided by 300 vessels of various capacities.

As EastRussia was told in the press service of the association, the report took into account the peculiarities of production and fishing areas. So, 35 large-tonnage vessels will be needed to catch pollock and herring in the Far Eastern Federal District. In the crab segment, 63 medium tonnage vessels are required.

Ten large vessels are required to catch cod and haddock in the Northern Basin and process them on board. The permissible volume of crab catch can be mastered by 13 medium-sized vessels.

It will also require 13 vessels over 100 meters, ten vessels over 80 meters in length and seven medium-tonnage vessels for the extraction of blue whiting, krill, herring tuna, mackerel and sardine in the Atlantic.

The renewal of almost the entire operating fleet will reduce costs and fish with fewer vessels, as well as double the economic return per ton of fish caught.
