Crab auction in Primorye

The Administration of the Primorsky Territory held a meeting on the distribution of quotas for the Kamchatka crab fishery in the Primorye sub-zone, the Governor's press service reports.

Representatives of the Rosrybolovstvo Department for Primorsky Krai, representatives of the Federal Antimonopoly Service for the Primorye, scientific organizations, the public represented by the Far Eastern Association of Crab, as well as companies engaged in crab fishery took part in its work.

The meeting participants noted that the crab is a demanded and currency-intensive fishing object, and it is important that the auctions are held openly and in compliance with all procedures.

Representatives of TINRO-Center informed the meeting participants about the number of crab: “After the ban on its commercial catch was introduced in 2001, the population recovered, and now its state is assessed as stable. Nevertheless, the resource must be treated rationally, since significant growth is not predicted in the coming years. "

An important topic of the meeting was the size of the quota shares for catching crab in the Primorye subarea. This year the quota was 506 tons. The size of the shares should, on the one hand, ensure the profitability of the fishery, and on the other, guarantee the maximum number of participants.

Enterprises engaged in the extraction of crab, offered to break the quota for 10 shares by 10 percent. This proposal will be taken into account by experts of the Federal Agency for Fishery in organizing auctions.

The auction organizers have already begun preparing the necessary documentation.

“Enterprises of the fishing industry can send their proposals on organizing crab auctions to the territorial administration of the Federal Agency for Fishery and the Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Biological Resources of Primorye,” said the director of the department, Alexander Perednya.
