Catching pollock in the Sea of Okhotsk was more than 128 thousand tons
Vasily Sokolov, Deputy Head of the Federal Agency for Fishery, held a meeting of the headquarters of the Sea of Okhotsk fishing in videoconference mode.
The total catch of pollock in the Sea of Okhotsk amounted to more than 128 thousand tons, which exceeds the catch of the last year by 5,8 thousand tons, or 5%. Most of the pollock is caught in the North Okhotsk region, it is almost 89 thousand tons. In the West Kamchatka region - 20 thousand tons, Kamchasko-Kurilskaya - 18 thousand tons, and in the East Sakhalin region - about 1 thousand tons.
127 mining and 10 processing vessels operate on the pollock and herring fisheries, including 14 fishing and 6 receiving vessels in the survey gear.
The main part of the fleet (up to 57 units) is currently operating in the North Okhotsk subarea near the Kashevarov bank. Ten vessels operate in the West Kamchatka subzone in the area of the throat of Shelikhov Bay. The fishing situation here is rather unstable, but the last two days there have been trends to improve. 15 vessels operate in the Kamchato-Kuril subzone. Commercial situation here is also unstable. In the Sea of Okhotsk, 7 large tonnage and 18 medium tonnage vessels are currently fishing, of which 3 operate according to coastal quotas. Here the fishing situation remains at a good level.
Anatoly Smirnov, a representative of the TINRO-Center Federal State Budgetary Scientific Institution, described the 2014-2015 winter as warm. In view of this, the specialists of the TINRO-center noted the possibility of shifting the timing of mass spawning to earlier dates. This, according to experts, explains the current unstable fishing situation in Western Kamchatka.
Following the meeting, Vasiliy Sokolov instructed research institutes to report on the projected dates of the start of mass spawning, as well as prepare and submit recommendations on the Okhotsk pollock fishery for the next headquarters meeting.
