Khabarovsk fishermen set a salmon production record

The Far Eastern Scientific and Field Council summed up the results of the "red" fishing season of 2014.

"Pacific salmon give ten percent of the total catch in the Russian Federation," said Vladimir Chekolaev, the head of the Okhotsk Territorial Administration of the Federal Fishery Agency. - This yearly season provides seasonal work to 40 thousand people, and taking into account the fish involved in the processing on the shore - 175 thousand.

According to the official, it is important that most of the products from salmon fish enter the domestic market.

In the Primorsky Territory fishermen this year have extracted 1,3 thousand tons of Pacific salmon, in the Magadan region - 2,3 thousand. In Kamchatka, the catch was about 140 thousand tons, this is, of course, the highest result in the region, but quite average for the edge: 115 thousand tons less than the level of 2012. Such figures were formed due to the fact that the approaches of pink salmon in the Kamchatka-Kuril and Western Kamchatka subzones proved to be very weak.

In the Sakhalin Oblast, production was more than 122 thousand tons, in the previous even-year it was more by five thousand tons. And again, pink salmon, whose volumes in the region of the southern Kurils were less than expected.

But the fishing enterprises of the Khabarovsk Territory reached the historical maximum of the catch. They extracted more than 67 thousand tons of salmon - this is more than 16 thousand ahead of the indicator 2012 year.

- This year was very successful for us, - commented the chairman of the Committee on Fisheries of the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Khabarovsk Territory Sergey Ryabchenko. - To begin with, the initial forecast was already quite good - 58 thousand tons. In the course of the trial, we changed these plans nine times. Thanks to the scientists from the Khabarovsk branch of TINRO who have been preparing all this time and confirming the justification for the need for corrections.

According to Ryabchenko, the lion's share of production fell on the Amur River basin, where they caught about 50 thousand tons.
