In the Far East summed up the salmon path

The TINRO-Center hosted the annual meeting of the Far Eastern Scientific and Fishery Council, which considered the results of the salmon fishing season, the distribution of quotas between the regions for 2014 and 2015, as well as a number of measures to improve the efficiency of fishery management in the Far Eastern basin, Pacific Russia reports.

At the beginning of the meeting, the Deputy Head of the Russian Fishery Agency Vasily Sokolov congratulated the representatives of the Khabarovsk Territory on the record Pacific salmon catch for them and presented the diploma to the Chairman of the Regional Fishery Committee, Sergey Ryabchenko, who on behalf of the regional fishermen thanked the industry science and representatives of the Federal Fishery Agency for helping to organize Putin.

In general, the head of the FAR organization of fishing organization Andrey Gornichnykh told about the results of the red vetch in the Far East. At 20 October, the salmon catch amounted to almost 330 thousand tonnes, in most of the subjects, the route has already been fully completed. This year high catch of chum salmon and coho salmon was shown by Kamchatka, Khabarovsk region also mastered significant volumes of chum salmon, large catches of sockeye salmon were canceled on Sakhalin.

The general recommended forecast for Pacific salmon was 94%, while the historical maximum of chum salmon was almost taken - 132 thousand tons. Since this year the distribution of catches was unusual, the approaches of pink salmon to Western Kamchatka and Iturup were extremely small, industry science was instructed to make a global analysis of the past fishing season by December and discuss its results at a meeting in VNIRO.

One of the issues on the agenda was proposals for amending the rules of fishing. Most of the issues voiced by science concerned the change of areas and the timing of the ban on fishing for various types of aquatic organisms (scallops, herring, algae). An active discussion sparked a proposal to impose a ban on the storage of fishing gear within the water protection zone or water body, which is prohibited in these periods. Representatives of Sakhalin and Kamchatka advocated the introduction of such a standard, but the Magadans pointed out different criteria for the length of water protection zones. It was decided to continue work on this issue, including with preservation of the possibility of implementing these norms in certain Far Eastern subjects.

Also at the meeting, the Far East Scientific and Technical Council considered issues of introducing changes to the rules of crossing the state border, the minimum daily catch of crabs.

In conclusion, Vasily Sokolov spoke about the implementation of the agreement on IUU fishing with the People's Republic of China. According to him, in the near future the fishermen will issue a certificate for crab products for shipment to the Middle Kingdom, without which the Chinese side will not be able to take the goods. It is expected that the directorates will conduct regular explanatory work with fishermen about the rules of work and issuing certificates, TINRO reports.
