The dispute of crab harvesters in the Far East with Rosrybolovstvo: only the President can help

The captains of 18 vessels that fish for crab in the West Kamchatka and Kamchatka-Kuril subzones of the Far Eastern basin addressed President Vladimir Putin. The captains are asking to resolve their dispute with the Federal Agency for Fishery, since it refuses to increase the allowable catch of crab - Kommersant reports.

Earlier, a similar request was made by the Far East Crab Catch Association, pointing out research data on a possible increase in quotas.

The necessary materials, which justify the adjustment of the allowable catch volumes, were sent for the state ecological expertise. However, the All-Russian Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography, the head institute of the industry, refused to provide the requested information, as a result of which the question remained open.

According to the captains, such actions cause serious economic damage to 1200 crew members, whose fishing vessels are forced to return to port ahead of schedule, and to the direct interests of Russia, since the state treasury receives less direct tax and other payments for at least 500 million rubles. If this situation is not resolved, this will be a direct cause of an increase in illegal crab catch. So according to the results of 2013 year, poaching had 30% of the total export of Russian crab.
