Chinese ports are closed to receive fish products from Russia until January 15. Until that time, fishermen hope that the authorities will develop measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

According to the press service of the government of Kamchatka, pollock fishing has started in the region. The fishing industry will be able to catch about 1,06 million tons of this species, the Kamchatka fishermen account for about 400 thousand tons of the total volume of quotas.

However, China, the main importer, consumer and processor of Russian pollock, has not yet opened ports to receive products. So far, there is no alternative to the PRC for Russian fishery producers. According to the Minister of Fisheries of the Kamchatka Territory, Andrei Zdevetsky, if the ports are not opened, it will seriously affect the economy of the region.

Russian fish export Chinese authorities suspended due to coronavirus last year. The Russian authorities have promised that the crews will comply with anti-epidemic measures and prevent the spread of the disease.

At the end of December, Yuri Trutnev, the presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, in a letter addressed to the Deputy Prime Minister of the State Council of China, co-chairman of the Russian-Chinese intergovernmental commission on cooperation and development of the Far East and the Baikal region of the Russian Federation and the North-East of China Hu Chunhua asked to remove restrictions to receive Russian fish.
