Russia is able to close the needs of the domestic fish market with its own resources - Rosrybolovstvo

Russia is able to meet the needs of the domestic fish market with its own resources. This was announced by the deputy head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries, Vasily Sokolov, at the IV All-Russian Conference of Fish Processing Engineers in Moscow.

As the press service of the department reports, the forum discussed the problem of rising fish prices in connection with the ban on the import of aquatic bioresources from countries that supported sanctions against the Russian Federation. Vasily Sokolov noted that these fears were exaggerated, but agreed that the price of chilled salmon would rise. “Business needs to think about promoting our domestic fish. Especially now, its own production is actively developing in this type, too, ”he said.

ЗThe actor in charge of Rosrybolovstvo added that the rise in prices was caused not by a shortage of products, but by the lack of logistical ties, excessive administrative barriers and the desire of some suppliers to capitalize on the resulting hype. According to Vasily Sokolov, Russian fish producers are able to cover the needs of the domestic market with their own resources. "Now the interaction of fishermen, suppliers and processors is a very important process, and we, unfortunately, are absolutely not regulated," he stated.

According to Vasily Sokolov, a favorable situation has developed in the domestic market for Far Eastern products, for example, sockeye salmon and coho salmon, which traditionally were exported. “There are no particular problems with the limited supply of Atlantic herring from Norway, since it can be replaced by Pacific herring. A question in marketing policy, - he considers. - Pacific herring with darker meat is less in demand among buyers, but in fact it was a favorite product in the USSR. The same situation with mackerel - the fishermen announced their intention to leave all the fish caught in 2014 on the domestic market. ”
