In the Primorsky Territory this year, the volume of fish catch has significantly decreased. Because of this, the authorities are proposing to increase the fishing time.

The Far East fishermen caught 297 thousand tons of red fish this year. This is only 63% of the plan for this year and 56% less than the volume of 2018. The main reason for the decline in production is the rise in water temperature and the death of salmon from toxins secreted by red algae

According to the deputy head of the regional fisheries agency Sergei Nastashev, the situation in Primorye is better, but the volumes can be increased. According to the press service of the regional government, the fishing industry in Primorye this year caught 7,4% more fish than in 2018 - 1 tons.

The topic of reducing the volume of salmon production was discussed with the Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Head of the Federal Agency for Fishery Ilya Shestakov. To solve the problem, he suggested contacting international experts from Japan and the United States. Russian scientists will develop a medium-term plan of action to study the salmon population: for this they will create a branch of the All-Russian Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography.
