Rosrybolovstvo does not consider it necessary to impose an embargo on fish products

In connection with the fall of the ruble, the export of fish products becomes economically profitable for fishermen, and such a tendency to increase exports is quite likely, said the head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries Ilya Shestakov. At the same time, he assures, the Russian fishing industry is physically unable to process all the fish that are now exported.

He also said that the balance in the market is maintained due to rising prices in Russia. “Taking into account the fall of the ruble, the export of Russian fish is becoming attractive to fishermen, but prices in Russia are also increasing, this allows maintaining a balance in the market,” said Ilya Shestakov. Therefore, he considers it unnecessary to impose an embargo on fish products, although he allows decisions to be made that could even out the current situation.

Russia with its own catch of 4 million tons of aquatic biological resources per year delivers to the world market more than 1,8 million tons. At the same time, Russia itself imports about 1 million tons of fish per year from other countries.
