The International Fishery Congress will be held in Primorye

The main topic of the IX International Fishermen Congress, which will be held in Primorye on September 4-5, will be the role of professional public associations of fishermen in the management of the industry.

This was announced at a press conference dedicated to the upcoming congress, said the director of the department of fisheries and aquatic biological resources of the Primorsky Territory, Alexander Perednya.

“We thought about the theme of the congress for a long time and, having analyzed the situation, decided to bring the role of the public to the fore. Both Russian fishermen and our foreign colleagues have such experience, ”said Alexander Perednya.

According to him, public organizations of fishermen will be widely represented at the forum.

"The All-Japan Fishermen Association, the Norwegian Association, 2 public organizations from the USA have already confirmed their participation, negotiations are underway with associations from the PRC," said the director of the department.

According to Alexander Perednya, representatives of the fish business, science and government bodies will traditionally participate in the IX International Congress of Fishermen. Thus, the Republic of Korea will be represented at the level of the Deputy Minister of Fisheries, Russia - at the level of the Rosrybolovstvo leadership.

The geography of the participants in the congress will not change: representatives of a number of Russian regions, China, the Republic of Korea, the USA, Japan, Norway, and Germany.

Speaking about the importance of the International Congress of Fishermen, Alexander Perednya noted that the fishing industry has traditionally been an instrument of big politics.

“At one time, we did not have diplomatic relations with Japan, and the fishing industry was the only“ bridge ”between our two countries. Today it also consolidates countries. For example, to protect the Bering Sea pollock, it is necessary to manage this resource jointly, ”he said.

The press conference was also attended by Georgy Martynov, President of the Association of Fisheries Enterprises of Primorye, and Georgy Klimov, Coordinator of the Shark of the Pen 2014 competition. This year's media competition will be held for the first time as part of the International Fishermen Congress.

Also within the framework of the congress it is planned to discuss personnel support of the industry and professional standards, issues of deep processing of fish.
