Vladimir Putin instructed to work out the idea of ​​supplying fish caught in the Far East along the Northern Sea Route. During the meeting on the situation in agriculture and the food industry, the head of state said that it was necessary to organize the work of ports in order to carry out export. 

The head of the Kamchatka Territory, Vladimir Solodov, told the president that delays in Vladivostok at the peak of Putin's are becoming one of the factors that fishery companies have refused to supply to the domestic market. Solodov called a solution to this logistical problem a more active use of the Northern Sea Route to deliver fish to the central regions of Russia.

According to Solodov, the potential delivery volume in the summer and autumn period of the fish route along the Northern Sea Route at the first stage may reach 50-60 thousand tons per year, and in the future it can be brought up to 250-300 thousand tons. The head of Kamchatka noted that, compared with shipping by rail, transportation by the Northern Sea Route is faster.

“I agree that for the delivery of Far Eastern fish products it is necessary to more actively use the Northern Sea Route and thereby reduce the cost of shipping fish, including to the European regions of Russia, which means making such products more affordable,” Putin said.

He asked Rosatom and Russian Railways to involve in the implementation of the idea. The President noted that increasing the capacity of the Northern Sea Route, its active use as an internal transport corridor requires the development of port infrastructure of the Far East and North-West of Russia, including the Murmansk transport hub. The president asked to keep this work under control.

Last year, the Russian government approved a plan for the development of the infrastructure of the Northern Sea Route until 2035. The measures are aimed at creating infrastructure for the further development of the Northern Sea Route and coastal territories. This should allow an increase in freight traffic by 2024 to 80 million tons. The Government estimates that the volume of goods transported along the Northern Sea Route by 2035 will reach 160 million tons - twice the performance planned for 2024.
