In connection with the closure of Chinese ports, the presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, Yuri Trutnev, came up with an initiative to expand processing facilities in Russia. At the first stage, he asked the Ministry of Agriculture, Rosrybolovstvo and Rosselkhoznadzor to prepare a report on the program for the provision of production quotas for investment projects.

According to the press service of the embassy in the Far Eastern Federal District, now the Far East accounts for about 65% of the production of aquatic biological resources. Taking into account the Arctic, which is also under the jurisdiction of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, the share of production is 82%.

Thanks to the introduced mechanism for issuing production quotas for investment projects, 14 modern fish processing plants will be built in the Far East in the coming years. Of these, nine plants have already been launched in Kamchatka, Primorye and Sakhalin. According to Trutnev, Russia should soon get away from the sale of raw materials for processing abroad.

To analyze the situation and potential, Rosrybolovstvo will prepare a report not only on the port cities of the Far Eastern Federal District, but also on the number of refrigeration equipment and precautions during a pandemic. Compliance with anti-epidemic standards, timely testing of crews will allow resume the reception of fish products in the ports of the PRC, where about 70% of all resources go.
