The construction of crab fishing vessels in the Far Eastern shipyards is to be extended from five to seven years. The bill on this was developed by the Ministry of Agriculture.

As noted in a document published on the federal portal of draft regulatory legal acts, measures are needed because all the proposed crab fishery projects are foreign. They require adaptation to Russian requirements, and this takes about 18 months.

The explanatory note to the bill also notes that many investment fishing vessel construction companies are already applying for an extension of the construction period by one year. At the same time, Far Eastern shipyards have significant accounts payable.

Earlier, Vladimir Putin approved the idea crabfish construction subsidies in the Far Eastern shipyards. It was planned that the amount of funding for these purposes could reach ten billion rubles. In total, the payment of subsidies for the first 16 crabs will require about five billion rubles.

Later, Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev said that the mechanism for issuing subsidies requires clarification and said that they intend to extend the maximum period the construction of crab fishermen in the Far East. He argued that local shipyards have no experience in the construction of such ships and they need more time to fulfill orders.

In February of this year, the Ministry of Agriculture finalized the draft resolution on the provision of subsidies, a provision appeared in it according to which crabbolders could be used only for mastering the quota share. Fishermen are unhappy, because in this case the vessels will be idle.
