In Kamchatka will monitor prices for bioresources

In the territory of the Kamchatka Territory and in other regions of the Russian Federation, prices for the products of the main types of aquatic biological resources begin to be monitored, said Vladimir Galitsyn, Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Kamchatka Territory, who took part in a meeting on import substitution. The meeting in the videoconference mode was held by the Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation - Head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries Ilya Shestakov.

During the meeting, it was noted that redirecting the flow of fish to the domestic market, including the European part of Russia, is a feasible task.

“Today there is a unique opportunity to replace foreign fish products of dubious quality with ecologically clean wild salmon of the Far East,” - said the deputy chairman.

He stressed that currently Kamchatka fishermen have extracted 112,5 thousand tons of salmon. This is not much less than last year. In 2013, during the same period, the catch rates were at the level of 115 thousand tons.

“This year we celebrate low approaches of pink salmon, - I said, Vladimir Galitsyn. "It is possible that the price for this particular type of fish may rise, but the price level will correspond to the ratio of supply and demand."

According to him, a very important decision was the agreement between the Federal Agency for Fishery, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia and the Association of Retail Companies on organizing direct supplies of products of fishing enterprises.

“Fishermen who are ready to supply their products online can contact the territorial administrations on this issue, - сказал Vladimir Galitsyn. "Direct contacts will help products to reach store shelves without intermediaries."

In addition, during the meeting, proposals were made to redirect the market for fish products to domestic consumers. As the meeting participants noted, for this, it is necessary first of all to limit the growth of tariffs for railway transportation of fish products and develop measures to stimulate the development of logistics for the delivery of fish from the Far East to the European part of Russia.

Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Kamchatka Territory Vladimir Galitsyn expressed confidence that the current situation will serve as an impetus for the development of the Northern Sea Route.
