The government of the Primorsky Territory explained why the price of canned saury has risen. The reason is the decline in catches of this fish.

According to the press service of the regional government, currently these canned fish are made from imported raw materials. In social networks, local residents complained about the rise in prices for canned food - the cost of one can of saury reaches 180 rubles, while a few months ago it could be bought at a price of 50 to 100 rubles.

According to the head of the Primorye Fisheries Agency Valery Korko, the main reason for the decline in production is natural cyclicality, the ivasi sardine has forced the saury out of the exclusive economic zone of Russia. At present, the fishermen of Primorye have switched from saury to saury sardine and mackerel. In 2020, the catch of saury amounted to 19 tons, previously it exceeded 60 thousand tons.

Valeriy Korko added that in order to resume fishing and increase production, it is necessary to modernize the fleet, update fishing gear and organize expeditionary fishing in the open waters of the Pacific Ocean.
