The pollock promotes the fishing industry in the Khabarovsk Territory
83,1 thousand tons of aquatic biological resources were caught by enterprises of the fishing industry in the Khabarovsk Territory in the first quarter of this year. This is 12,6% more than the same period last year, the press service of the regional government reported, citing the regional ministry of natural resources.
According to the report, the volume of fish and fish products production exceeded last year’s level by 7,1%, making 63,2 thousand tons. The volume of products shipped reached 2,6 billion, which is 9,2% higher than the results of the first quarter of 2013.
As explained by the Deputy Chairman of the Committee for Fisheries of the Regional Ministry of the Environment, Sergey Andryushchenko, a significant increase in sectoral indicators was ensured by strengthening pollock production. Market prices for Pacific herring are declining, so many enterprises of the region have shifted to pollock as a more profitable resource.
“If a year ago, during the fishing season, enterprises produced 61 thousand tons of pollock, then by April of this year - almost 80 thousand. This was facilitated by both the good preparation of the enterprises themselves and the favorable fishing situation in the North Okhotsk subarea, ”the press service quotes S. Andryushchenko as saying.
