The Federal Agency for Fishery reported that 20% of investment quotas will be distributed in the Far East in 2023. For processing plants - in 2022.

According to the press service of the Primorsky Territory government, a long-term strategy for pollock fishing was discussed in the region. According to the head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries Ilya Shestakov, 20% of quotas for investment projects for the construction of ships and processing plants will be distributed for fishermen of the Far Eastern Federal District.

“The decision has been made, there will be investment quotas. This will give new perspectives and opportunities. We need to create conditions under which all the pollock we produce will be processed in the Far East, ”Shestakov said.

The governor of the region, Oleg Kozhemyako, stressed that at present it is necessary to increase the ship, fish processing and refrigeration capacities.

“It is necessary to diversify the pollock fishery so that the products reach the buyer in processed form. The development of the Northern Sea Route will make it possible to ship pollock to the west of the country, to Europe, ”added Kozhemyako.

According to investment quotas, two large fish processing plants have been built in Bolshoy Kamen and Nadezhdinsky District, and ten processor trawlers have been laid down at Russian shipyards. Fishermen of Primorye catch almost 500 thousand tons of pollock every year, which is 64% of the total catch of all aquatic biological resources of enterprises in the region.

Russian fishermen in the face of restrictions on the export of pollock to China, reduce catch this fish. Delivery difficulties began in December last year - after the Chinese discovered coronavirus on frozen goods from Russia.

Plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev instructed increase the volume of fish processing capacities on the territory of the Far East. In February, seaside fishermen began export pollock to the European market. Since the beginning of the season, almost 80 thousand tons of pollock have been caught by the enterprises of the region.
