Seaside products can compensate for the decline in fish production in Russia

The decline in fish production in Russia, which arose in the conditions of a ban on the import of a product from a number of countries, will fill fish products from Primorye. Enterprises in the province are ready to supply the central part of the country with the Pacific herring, shrimp, pollock, squid, and Far Eastern salmon may well replace farmer salmon from Norway, RIA PrimaMedia reports.

The decline in fish production and fish production in Russia in the conditions of a ban on the import of fish from a number of countries for 10 months 2014 accelerated. In total during this period, 3 million tons of fish and fish products were produced, which is 5,2% less than in the same period of 2013. In January-September, the decline was 4,4%. In October this year compared to the same month last year, production decreased by 12,7%, compared to September 2014 - by 9,5%, Interfax reported. Thus, the food embargo reduced the resource base of a number of fish processing enterprises throughout Russia.

However, this situation did not affect Primorye. According to the Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Biological Resources of the Primorsky Territory, the main measures for import substitution are determined by the state program of the Primorsky Territory "Development of the fishery complex in the Primorsky Territory for 2013-2017."

- The purpose of this program is to expand the production and marketing of competitive Russian fish and seafood products with a high degree of processing and to ensure, on this basis, intensive replacement of imported products in the domestic market, the department noted.

Primorye enterprises are ready to supply the central part of Russia with Pacific herring, shrimp, pollock, squid. Far Eastern salmon may well replace farmer salmon from Norway. Enterprises of the region are ready to completely replace the supply of Atlantic herring, shrimp.

One of the Vladivostok companies instead of Norwegian salmon launched a line of products from sockeye salmon and chinook salmon. The products are in good demand. And another famous producer of crab sticks and fish sausages, actively replaces the surimi production of the US in Japanese and Vietnamese, is working out options for the supply of surimi from domestic pollock.
