China is concerned about the supply of Russian fish through Korea

China is concerned about the supply of Russian fish and seafood through the ports of Korea. The Rosselkhoznadzor negotiated the supply of fish with the Main Customs Administration of the People's Republic of China.

As the Fishnews, the meeting was attended by representatives of the Trade Representation of Russia in China, the Federal Agency for Fishery and the National Center for the Safety of Watercraft and Aquaculture Products. It was announced that direct supplies of fish and seafood from Russia to China have significantly decreased due to increased control from the PRC - now they can only be exported in containers. Due to the closure of the ports of Dalian and Qingdao, goods are sent to the Republic of Korea, from where they are transported to the PRC.

At the meeting, the Chinese side expressed concern about this circumstance. The Rosselkhoznadzor noted that there is a representative of the department in Korea who controls incoming goods.

The Russian side said that it complies with all China's requirements for imported controlled goods, including as part of the fight against coronavirus. In particular, on ships and fish processing enterprises, workers are tested for COVID-19.

In addition, the veterinary department, at the request of the Chinese colleagues, conducts re-examinations of all enterprises certified for the export of fish and seafood to the PRC. Checks have already been carried out and dossiers have been sent to 446 domestic companies and courts.

Earlier it was reported that salmon factories were recommended to use their capacities to the maximum by switching to a year-round operation. Necessity increasing the share of processing raw materials inside the country caused restrictions on the import of Russian fish products, introduced by China in connection with the pandemic.

At the end of last year, China closed all ports for receiving cargo, including for receiving fish products from Russia. Such measures were taken as quarantine measures due to COVID-19. Russia exported about 61% of its fish products to China.
