The Federal Agency For Fishery has developed the concept of a Far Eastern fish cluster. Rosrybolovstvo says that the start of an active, detailed discussions with the regions and presentations for potential investors is planned in 2016.

The ministry suggests that the outcome of the first phase of implementation of the project in Primorsky Krai by 2018 can lower the prices for fish products, filling the domestic market with quality products in a volume of 100 thousand tonnes per year attracting 17 billion roubles of private investment, the growth of tax revenues with 1.6 billion roubles a year creating around 1,300 high-performance job places.

As it has been reported by the news agency REGNUM, catching fish increased by 5% in Russia in 2015. According to The Russian Federal Agency For Fishery, despite the difficulties occurred, Russian fishing industry is capable to replace the dropping volume of import in terms of the overall balance, including those supplied from Turkey. The ministry believes that Russian fish is not bad, on the contrary, it is even better and tastier. 

We remind you that the Russian government established a commission for the development of fishing industry. 
