Catch of saury in Russia significantly exceeded the level of 2012 and 2013 years

As of 17 November 2014, the total catch in the exclusive economic zone of the Russian Federation by Russian, Japanese and Korean vessels amounted to about 104 thousand tons. This was said by deputy head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries Vasily Sokolov at the turn-off selector meetings on the passage of saury and crab pathes in the Far East.

“Russian users caught 67 thousand tons of saury, which is significantly higher than the final catches in 2013 - 52 thousand tons and in 2012 - 63 thousand tons,” the press service of the Federal Agency for Fishery reports. Nevertheless, before the record 2007 catch (almost 110 thousand tons), almost 42 thousand tons were not enough. Aleksey Baytalyuk, Deputy Director of FSUE TINRO-Center, explained this by the fact that the volume of saury catch in 2014 was influenced by unfavorable weather conditions (an abundance of stormy days), a decrease in the number of saury in the EEZ of Russia compared to 2007-2008, as well as changed hydrology.

Vasily Sokolov also said that the total catch of Kamchatka crab on the West Kamchatka shelf amounted to 4 thousand 64 tons, 85% of the quota was used. The rate of fishing has decreased over the past week due to the fact that most of the enterprises have mastered their quotas and the vessels left the area. For the week, the catch of Kamchatka crab in the West Kamchatka subarea amounted to 141,3 tons, the growing catch - 2596,8 tons. In the Kamchatka-Kuril subarea, 59,8 tons were caught during the week, the growing catch is 1518,4 tons, the Federal Agency for Fishery reports.

According to Sergei Bokievets, the acting head of Primorye Territorial Administration of the Federal Agency for Fisheries, the cost of shipping one kilogram of fish products from Vladivostok to Moscow has dropped to 9,2-9,7 rubles, while the filling of refrigerators in Vladivostok is still very high - 80-90%.
