Rosrybolovstvo: negotiations on the export of fish to China are difficult

The Federal Agency for Fishery said that negotiations on the resumption of the export of Russian fish to China are going on with difficulty. Opportunities are being explored for the supply of products, bypassing the ports of China - through Japan and Korea.

As the Interfax, said the head of the Federal Agency for Fishery Ilya Shestakov. He added that Russia plans to discuss the lifting of restrictions on the acceptance of Russian fish by the ports of the PRC within the framework of the Joint Fisheries Commission.

“We are working with our Chinese colleagues on this issue, the discussion is quite difficult. Now the possibility of transshipment through container deliveries is open, transshipment in bulk is impossible, "Shestakov said.

He added that the Russian side expects China to take this issue into consideration.

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. 

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