The importance of Kamchatka in terms of providing fish products to Russia should grow substantially - Matviyenko

The role and importance of the Kamchatka Territory in terms of providing Russia with fish products should grow substantially. This was reported by the Chairman of the Council of Federation of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, Valentina Matvienko, at a meeting with journalists of the federal and Kamchatka media, the press service of the regional administration reports.

“Kamchatka has a very large potential. Of course, there are difficulties with transport logistics, delivery, lack of a sufficient number of refrigerated fleet, - said Valentina Matvienko. - Not everything here depends on the Kamchatka Territory - special additional measures are needed with the participation of the federal government. I know that Vladimir Ilyukhin is already dealing with this issue, he met with the head of the Federal Agency for Fishery. The corresponding task has been set for the Government and we very much hope in this matter for Kamchatka. One of the goals of my visit to you is just to look at the opportunities that exist in the region. "

Kamchatka Krai today produces up to 23% of all fish products in the country, not counting the volumes that are exported. In general, Kamchatka fishermen near the peninsula catch up to 1 million tons of fish per year. According to Valentina Matvienko, in order to increase these indicators and close the needs of the domestic market, it is necessary to expand the possibilities for the extraction and processing of fish products; increase the capacity for breeding fish and stop poaching.

The head of the region noted that over the past few years, about 13 billion rubles have been invested in coastal production in Kamchatka: fish processing plants on the peninsula are among the most modern in the country. In addition, there are 5 fish hatcheries in the region. Investors are ready to build similar enterprises on the basis of public-private partnership, but even here they face a number of problems.

“These factories were built, including with borrowed funds, with the prospect of long-term loading of fish processing volumes. For this, the quotas of coastal fishing must be tied to the territory, - said the governor. - The same applies to fish hatcheries. Business is ready to invest in this industry, but there is no certainty that they will then be able to use the fruits of their labor, because everyone will have access to these RVDs. Let's give our business a guarantee: if they built a factory, raised fry, released it into the sea, this fish is back, then let them catch it, let them make a profit. "

Valentina Matvienko noted that a draft law has been drafted in the Federation Council, according to which investors who created production on the shore would have the right to work on this site 10 years without conducting an additional competition.
