Other Media | FiskerForum: Russian Pollock plant gears up for September start

Tuesday, July 14, 2020

Commissioning equipment has begun at the Russian Pollock factory being built by the Russian Fishery Company (RFC) in Primorsky Territory in the Russian Far East, ahead of a 1st September commissioning date for the new factory.

The Russian Pollock factory is the largest fish processing enterprise in Primorsky Territory, built under the Russian government’s investment quotas programme to boost the fishing and shipbuilding sectors.

‘Large-scale construction is possible entirely due to investment quota program. I am confident that investment construction is today the most effective and only possible way for our fishing industry to become a driver for the development of coastal regions and individual industries,’ said Gleb Frank, Chairman of the Board of Directors of RFC.

Other Media | FiskerForum: ST Petersburg Exhibition postponed to 2021

Monday, June 22, 2020

The Global Fishery Forum & Seafood Expo Russia, which had been due to take place in St Petersburg in September, has been postponed.

The event has been rescheduled to 6-8th July 2021, following a decision made by the organising committee chaired by Federal Fisheries Agency head Ilya Shestakov.

According to the organisers, this decision came down to reasons that include the dynamics of the spread of Covid-19, as well as the lack of guarantees as to the quality of the event.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Quiet May for landings in Murmandk

Monday, June 15, 2020

The Murmansk Sea Fishing Port saw a drop in activity during May this year with no blue whiting products landed at the port last month.

While in April fishing companies had landed 60% of their catches to the port, this figure fell to around 30% last month, as a roll-back in Covid-19 restrictions in European ports meant that more production was landed elsewhere.

As a result, there were only landings of demersal fish and shrimp in Murmansk during last month as 47 fishing vessels landed catches.

Monday, June 08, 2020

Russian government officials have set their sights on expansion into the Antarctic krill fishery as part of a national strategy to increase domestic seafood production.

Growing Russia’s krill catch is a significant part of a strategy crafted by Ilya Shestakov, chairman of the Russia’s Federal Agency for Fisheries, to reach the country’s goal of doubling the country’s revenues from seafood exports. Recently, the agency’s representatives have begun promotion of the concept in Russian media and at industry events.

IN BRIEF - Rosrybolovstvo: 'Within four years we will get a completely different quality of the crab fishing fleet'

Thursday, June 04, 2020

On June 2, at the shipyards of Nakhodka Ship Repair Yard JSC (NSRY), a solemn ceremony of laying eight crab fishermen under the investment quota program was held. In videoconference mode, the ceremony was attended, in particular, by the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation - Plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev and Deputy Head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries Vasily Sokolov.

“Today, at the Nakhodka Shipyard, the first series of vessels for the extraction of crab is laid. This is a fairly large order. Quite a long time ago, the company did not receive orders of this volume. This order took place thanks to the decision by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin to introduce the mechanism of “quotas in exchange for investments”. Six buildings are laid for the Antey group of companies and two buildings for the Pacific Fisheries Company. I want to wish good luck to all participants in the process: the shipbuilders, for whom this is a large order, the opportunity to expand their competencies and give a new impetus to the development of their enterprise, and the fishermen who are waiting for these vessels to continue working and catch crabs. This is to some extent a symbolic moment. Because the money of fishing companies operating in the Far East went to other countries. It is important to turn the tide, to ensure that the money earned on the territory of the Russian Federation remains in our country. We have been talking for a long time about the need to revive shipbuilding, today this is happening. The flagship is the Zvezda shipyard, which is being built next to Vladivostok in Nakhodka. But it is necessary to maintain and develop all existing enterprises. I hope that the vessels at the NSRZ will be built on time and with good quality, ”said Yuri Trutnev. But it is necessary to maintain and develop all existing enterprises. I hope that the vessels at the NSRY will be built on time and with good quality”, said Yuri Trutnev.

The lead ship of project 03070 Rus was transferred to the Customer - LLC Antei on May 15, 2020. Rus is the first Russian crabfish built under the investment quota program.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Russian shipyard delays put investment quota programs at risk

Thursday, May 28, 2020

The implementation of the Russian government’s ambitious plan to upgrade its national fishery fleet through an investment-quota incentive program – which ties quota allocations to investments in new ships at Russian shipyards – is likely going to be delayed, as companies in the country aren’t capable of constructing the vessels in timeframe outlined in the program's bylaws.

The incentive program was launched by the government in 2016, and allocates additional quotas for some species to certain companies, if those companies have a ship of certain specifications built at a Russian shipyard within six years. The additional quota is given to the company for 15 years, but only upon the commissioning of the vessel.

Other Media | SalmonBusiness: 1300 km trip and quarantine: Aquaculture equipment makers work out how to deliver salmon cages to Russia’s closed border

Wednesday, May 27, 2020

When Russia closed its borders because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Norwegian company Helgeland Plast had to rethink how to delivering salmon cages to its neighbours in the east. The solution was for a to team to drive over 1300 kilometres to have the cages put together and then picked up by a Russian tugboat.

“COVID-19 brought with it a great deal of uncertainty about our activities, both on the customer side and the supplier side. All the measures that were implemented, either by the government or the municipalities, changed our surroundings in such a way that we had to create some scenarios of situations that could potentially arise,” said Petter Jørgensen to SalmonBusiness.
