Sakhalin will invest in the fishing industry more than 5.5 billion rubles

The Sakhalin Region in support of the regional fish industry will invest almost 5,5 billion in the regional state program for the development of the fisheries complex at 2014-2020.

As the head of the regional fisheries agency Pavel Kolotushkin told Interfax, “in 2014, the implementation of the regional state program for the development of the fishery complex of the Sakhalin region for 2014-2020 was launched. Its cost is almost 5,5 billion rubles. "

According to him, this year, the regional government will invest 132 million rubles for state support of enterprises engaged in aquaculture, reproduction, as well as processing enterprises developing coastal infrastructure and producing high value-added products within this program. The money will go to repay interest rates on loans and leasing payments.

According to the head of the agency, last year the fishermen of the region extracted almost 800 thousand tons of aquatic biological resources, including about 300 thousand tons of pollock and almost 220 thousand tons of Pacific salmon, which is a record catch for the entire post-Soviet period. Such indicators were achieved thanks to the massive approaches of Pacific salmon and the efficiency of management of the fishery.

This year it is planned that the fishermen of the region will catch about 700 thousand tons of aquatic biological resources (FBG). "This is due to the fact that quotas for pollock are reduced, for salmon the forecast for harvest is at the level of 140 thousand tons," P.Kolotushkin explained.

“But last year we also planned that the total catch of aquatic bioresources in 2013 would be about 700 thousand tons. And according to the scientists' initial forecasts, salmon catches were planned in the amount of 116 thousand tons, and much more fish came up, forecasts for salmon catches were adjusted upwards several times, ”he noted.
