Russia can increase the pollock production limit for South Korea

In Moscow, the 23 session of the Russian-Korean Commission on Fisheries was completed. Basically, it was about organizing a pollock fishery in South Korea's courts in the exclusive economic zone of Russia in 2014. Also at the talks were discussed measures to implement the recommendations of the commission, the Rosrybolovstva public relations center said.

This year, South Korea will be able to extract additional 10 thousand tons of pollock in the waters of the Russian Federation if it regularly stops the unloading of illegally caught Russian crab in its ports. Verification of the fulfillment of these obligations will last until September September 1

Recall that the main meeting of the session took place on April 16-18 in Seoul. The Russian delegation was headed by Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation - Head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries Ilya Shestakov.

During the session, experts paid the most attention to key issues of cooperation. This is the extraction of aquatic bioresources by Korean vessels in Russian waters, the activation of Korea's activities to implement the intergovernmental agreement in the field of combating IUU fishing and attracting Korean investments in the development of the fishery complex of the Far East.

According to the agreements reached, South Korea this year will be able to develop in the exclusive economic zone of Russia 49,365 thousand tons of aquatic biological resources, including 30 thousand tons of pollock. At the same time, pollock production limit can be increased by another 10 thousand tons.

An additional quota will be allocated if the Russian side does not submit a valid claim to South Korea before 1 September on the facts of unloading in the Korean ports of crab illegally obtained in the waters of the Russian Federation. Attempts to import poacher catches should be stopped, regardless of whether illegal products should be exported to the republic or intended for transit to third countries.
