Fish-producing enterprises of Kolyma will introduce mandatory minimum salmon for sale in the domestic market

Representatives of Magadan fish companies at a meeting with the governor of the region Vladimir Pechenyi made a proposal

set to fishing companies Magadan region compulsory salmon minimum for domestic sales, the press service of the regional government reports. The meeting was also attended by representatives of the enterprises of wholesale and retail trade of the Magadan region. The head of the region was sharply negative about the situation with the assortment and prices of fish products in the Magadan market.

According to the Deputy Head of the Department of Fisheries of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Elena Taran, for the first quarter of the year 2015, the catch amounted to 16,2 thousand tons, including 16,1 thousand tons mastered during commercial fishing. Thus, in the exclusive economic zone of the Russian Federation, 12,6 thousand tons of pollock, 2,4 thousand tons of herring, 759,5 tons of northern shrimp, more than 90 tons of crab of equal size, 1,7 tons of flounder are caught. At the same time, only 2,9 thousand tons of seafood have been shipped from the fishing areas to the Russian coast, and 10,8 thousand tons have been shipped for export (taking into account the passing remains of shrimp and flounder).

«On the shore of the Magadan Region, out of catches in the exclusive economic zone in 2015, the products were not shipped at all. The reasons for this are a seaport closed for navigation, ice conditions, unfavorable weather conditions. Deliveries during this period are possible only by transport vessels intended for container transport, having a different ice class with fishing vessels and vessels intended for transporting catches. As a rule, fish products from fishing areas are shipped to the port of Vladivostok, as a more favorable for shipping and a large logistics center", - said Elena Taran.

The head of the region called unacceptable the state of affairs when most of the fish extracted in the region goes beyond it, and local people do not have the opportunity to buy cheap fish.

The Governor also instructed to work with trading enterprises to monitor and regulate the prices of seafood.

The head of the region supported the suggestion made by the director general of the North-Eastern ecological company Mikhail Tumashov at the meeting, to establish for all fishing enterprises of Kolyma the mandatory minimum for implementation in the territory of the Magadan region. This measure will saturate the regional market with locally produced products.
