Seaside fishermen began to export pollock to the European market. Since the beginning of the season almost 80 thousand tons of pollock have been caught by the enterprises of the region.

According to the press service of the regional government, due to the closure of Chinese ports, fishermen are looking for new markets - they export pollock fillets to Europe. More than 25 vessels of coastal companies are working in the pollock fishery in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk, quotas have been utilized by 15%.

The Russian government has instructed to increase fish processing capacity in the Far East in the next two years in order to remove dependence on China. Two large factories for processing pollock and other fish have already been built in Bolshoy Kamen and the Nadezhdinsky District of Primorye; ports are increasing their refrigeration capacity.

Russian fishermen in the face of restrictions on the export of pollock to China, reduce catch this fish. Delivery difficulties began in December last year - after the Chinese discovered coronavirus on frozen goods from Russia.

Plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev instructed increase the volume of fish processing capacities in the Far East. In the context of the ban on the main export of pollock, the possibility of creating an industrial ASEZ and placing it in several regions where mining is taking place will be considered.
