Ilya Shestakov outlined the main tasks of the RF State Program "Development of the Fisheries Complex"

According to the Public Relations Center of the Federal Agency for Fisheries, on April 21, Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation - Head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries Ilya Shestakov took part in parliamentary hearings on the topic “State program for the development of the fishery complex. Reality and Prospects ”.

The state program was approved by an order of the Government of the Russian Federation dated March 7 from 2013. Then the document was finalized taking into account the existing regulatory and legal framework for the development and implementation of state programs. At the same time, the volume of funding for the state program was brought in line with the legislation on the federal budget. The new version of the document was approved by the Government of the Russian Federation on April 15 2014.

In his speech, Ilya Shestakov outlined the main tasks and the amount of financing of the State Program of the Russian Federation "Development of the Fisheries Complex," which measures are designed for 2013-2020 years, as well as proposed measures to stimulate investment activity in the industry.

The total amount of funding for the State Program has decreased compared to the previous version of the document by 6,4% and amounted to 83 billion. 199,5 million rubles. Including in the period of 2017-2020, the amount of financing of the State Program was reduced compared to the previous version of the document by 11,8%.

In connection with the reduction in the volume of financing, there are risks of a decrease in the main industry indicators.

"To mitigate these risks and to attract investment resources into the industry, the Ministry of Agriculture, together with the Federal Agency for Fishery, has developed a draft concept of the federal target program" Increasing the efficiency of use and development of the resource potential of the fishery complex in 2015-2020. "This FTP is designated in the new version of the State Program as one of the subprograms is aimed at the transition to the “development scenario” of the fishery industry ", - said Ilya Shestakov.

At the same time, the Federal Fisheries Agency is currently actively working on the formation of a set of measures, the implementation of which will improve the competitiveness of the Russian fisheries industry and bring the industry to a new level.

One of the main growth points is the development of commercial aquaculture. To solve this problem, it is necessary to attract significant financial resources, which should be directed, inter alia, to the construction, reconstruction and modernization of fish-breeding infrastructure facilities. "In particular, it is necessary to stimulate the attraction of credit resources to the commercial fish farming industry by subsidizing interest rates on investment loans aimed at the development of aquaculture. <..> This measure will additionally attract about 10-15 rubles of investments to this industry for each budget ruble spent , which will provide an average annual increase in aquaculture production at the level of 25-32%, "he said.

The source of funding, according to Shestakov, may be compensation payments from the fish farming companies themselves. Currently, they pay in-kind compensation for the negative effects of their activities. The head of the Federal Agency for Fishery offers to transfer these payments in cash.

"The potential resource here is about 4 billion rubles a year, which could be used to finance the state program," Shestakov added.

"Taking into account the need to strengthen investment activity in the field of commercial fish farming, aquaculture entities should have access to generally accepted measures of state support. In particular, it is necessary to stimulate the attraction of credit resources to the industry by subsidizing interest rates on investment loans aimed at developing aquaculture," Ilya explained Shestakov. Rosrybolovstvo has already developed a draft government decree approving the rules for the provision of such subsidies.

Ilya Shestakov also said that by now the complex of measures has been developed, aimed at creating conditions for the formation of a developed domestic market for fishery products and at stimulating fish processing in the Russian Federation. Currently, they are undergoing interdepartmental coordination.

Head Rosrybolovstva also outlined the measures being developed by the Agency aimed at increasing the efficiency of using aquatic biological resources, increasing the resource base of the fishing industry.
