Ilya Shestakov: Far Eastern fishermen are ready to work on import substitution

Ilya Shestakov, Deputy Minister of Agriculture, head of the Federal Fisheries Agency, shared the problems and successes of the Far Eastern region in the field of fisheries, and also talked about the immediate tasks currently facing the industry.

As for the Far East, there, according to him, wonderful Pacific salmon are caught. However, in recent years, due to inactive demand in the domestic market and high demand abroad, significant volumes of Pacific salmon were exported. Moreover, the Far Eastern salmon can be delivered to the European part of Russia both frozen and salted. Now, in particular, due to the reduction in the volume of supplies abroad, Russian fishermen are ready and intend to work in the direction of import substitution, says Ilya Shestakov.

The head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries and the situation in the labor market in the fishing industry in the Far East explained. Indeed, now there is a staff hunger among the fishermen, and this becomes a serious problem for them. This issue, according to Ilya Shestakov, was discussed at a meeting with Dalrybvtuz students, which makes it increasingly obvious that there is a need to establish mutually beneficial cooperation between fisheries enterprises and educational institutions, since educational institutions subordinate to Rosrybolovstvo produce a sufficient number of specialized specialists to fill the market.

According to the head of Rosrybolovstvo, the main plans for the industry for the next year will be:

1. Finalization of draft amendments to the Law on Fisheries. Improving the regulatory framework for aquaculture development

2. Subsidizing investment projects in the field of fisheries.

3. Increasing the effectiveness of measures for the conservation and reproduction of aquatic biological resources, including through the mechanism of compensatory measures.

4. Development of industrial infrastructure, including Russian ports.

“In general, we are faced with a lot of tasks for the development of the fishery complex, determined by the country's leadership. The orders are in varying degrees of implementation. Their highest quality and complete execution is our priority, and work in this direction will continue in the new year ”- assures Ilya Shestakov.
