The Federation Council supported changes in the program of development of the fisheries complex

The Federation Council Committee on Agrarian and Food Policy and Environmental Management has considered the draft resolution of the Government of the Russian Federation "On Amendments to the State Program of the Russian Federation" Development of the Fisheries Industry ", the press service of the Federal Agency for Fishery said.

The main report on this issue was made by the Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation - Head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries Ilya Shestakov.

According to him, the changes introduced support the development of commodity fish culture (aquaculture) as the basis for import substitution of fish products in the domestic market, including the development of sturgeon farming, as well as the infrastructure development of the fishery complex. The document also reflects the expansion of resource research to increase the estimated potential of the resource base for aquatic bioresources and to expand the range and volumes of possible fish catch.

The draft resolution provides for the restructuring of the state program. It also includes sub-program 8 "Sturgeon farm development" with related activities and amounts of funding, as well as subprogramme 7 "Increasing the efficiency of use and developing the resource potential of the fisheries complex" partially includes activities with the corresponding amounts of funding from the FTP project "Improving efficiency use and development of the resource potential of the fishery complex in 2015-2020 and for the period up to 2023. "

The draft clarified the formulation of the main goals and objectives of the state program. In accordance with the new edition of the state program, by the year of 2020, the volume of catching aquatic biological resources will increase to 4,46 million tons, the production volume of aquaculture will be doubled - at least up to 315 thousand tons, "commented the head of Rosrybolovstvo.

It is forecasted that the volume of fish and processed products produced by 2020 will amount to 3,97 million tons, and the share of domestic fish products in the domestic market will reach the threshold value of 80%, as defined by the Doctrine of Food Security. This indicator will be achieved, including through the development of commercial fish farming. The average per capita consumption of fish and fish products by the population of the Russian Federation is projected at 2020 kg per year by 22,7.

The project takes into account additional funds of the federal budget redistributed by the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia as a subject of budget planning for 2015, 2016 and 2017 years in the amount of 3,0 billion rubles, 3,2 billion rubles and 3,3 billion rubles, respectively. "Thus, the draft changes to the State program increased the amount of funding from the federal budget in comparison with the approved version by 11,1% - to 92 470,4 million rubles for the period of 2013-2020 years," explained Ilya Shestakov.

Following the discussion of the submitted proposals, the participants of the meeting of the Committee supported the draft of the document under consideration, noting, however, that for the active development of the fishery complex it is necessary to envisage additional amounts of state support. This applies primarily to the development of infrastructure and reconstruction of coastal infrastructure, as well as the development of aquaculture.
