The trend of rising prices for red fish will continue because of its shortage in the market - Rosrybolovstvo

The trend of rising prices for red fish will continue due to its shortage in the market. As reported by the Itar-Tass news agency, the head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries Ilya Shestakov said this at a selector meeting on the situation in the food market held by the Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich.

The head of the Federal Agency for Fishery noted that the salmon catch in the Far East is now "rather bad" and is still 65% of the plan. "In general, salmon fishing in the Far East is not going as well as we would like, we are going with a decline of about 10-15%, and it has not ended yet," he said.

As the Russian Fishery Agency reported earlier, as of 12 in August 2014, the catch of Pacific salmon in the Far Eastern Fishery Basin was 188 thousand tons, which is less than the catch for the same period of 2012 year (analogous year) by 94 thousand tons. Only the Khabarovsk Territory has positive catch rates.

“It can be partially noted that the price of red fish, in particular pink salmon, which is one of the cheapest, really began to grow even before the decree was issued, and this trend will continue due to the shortage on the market,” concluded Ilya Shestakov.
