Since the beginning of the year, the catch of aquatic biological resources in the Far Eastern Basin amounted to 1 million 213,2 thousand tons

The head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries Ilya Shestakov held an operational meeting, according to the official website of the agency. The agenda included the development of quotas for catching aquatic biological resources by Russian users, the transformation of research institutes under the jurisdiction of the Federal Agency for Fishery, the implementation of agreements to counter illegal fishing and others.

According to the Fisheries Management Department, the total catch of all Russian users as of May 13, 2014 amounted to 1 million 695,2 thousand tons, which is 29,8 thousand tons less than last year. At the same time, the catch of aquatic biological resources in the Far Eastern Basin is 1 million 213,2 thousand tons, which is 15,9 thousand tons more than last year. Including in the pollock fishery the catch is 946,7 thousand tons, which is 38,1 thousand tons more than last year.

According to Elena Troshina, Deputy Head of the Directorate for the Organization of Fisheries, it is expected that the positive dynamics of catch in the Far Eastern basin will continue in the first half of the year and further, mainly due to the pollock. The main fishing in the Bering Sea begins in 15 in May, with the total quota of pollock production for the current year being 505 thousand tons. To date, this quota has been developed by 10%, the catch exceeds last year's figure by 15,6 thousand tons. Pollock is fishing in the waters of the Kuril Islands. The development of aquatic bioresources in the third quarter will largely depend on the course of the Pacific of salmon.

According to him, at present, the Chinese and Japanese sides continue to conduct domestic procedures for certification of products.
