On November 15 fishermen Primorsky Krai produced 660 thousand. Tonnes of fish, which is 105.6% compared to the same period last year.
Such data correspondent «Fisherman’s newspaper» head of the department of fisheries Primorye Territory Alexei Tsymbal.
«Today the performance of fishery industry of the region is not worse than in 2010, which was a record for a decade, and we were able to overcome the barrier of 700 thousand tons. On November 1 this year has been mastered 70% of the allocated quota. There is an increase on the taxes paid, salary. Important figure – more than 80% of companies operate with a profit, there is little public sectors such situations».
In the past year have been reduced quotas for pollock, which is why coastal fishermen had to refocus on herring fishery: if last year it was produced 24 thousand. Tons, in this – 64 thousand. According to A. Tsymbal, played a role in the extension of the herring fishery 10 days in the Sea of Okhotsk. Therefore, in the Far East fisheries council this year decided to continue this practice.
«I must say now much eroded stocks of Atlantic herring, and, in Europe, Africa, the demand in the Pacific. It pays a good price. So the financial losses due to the transition from Alaska pollock Herring was not observed, – he added. – Well done to Sayre, if last year caught 7,000 tonnes, this year – 18 thousand. Disbursed 90% quota for mackerel. The catch of saffron cod increased from 180 tons to 900 tons. Companies traditionally have taken the edge in the processing of Kamchatka and Sakhalin miners more than 50 thousand tons of salmon».
Commenting on the decrease in financing enterprises coastal refining, Alexei Tsymbal noted that «we were expecting the arrival of more companies, not all were willing to work according to our requirements. Although, they are quite simple and clear. There are three targets. Firstly, an increase in output. We will not help those who are not ramping up production, what’s the point? Second, help those companies that derive wages out of the shadows, show real wages.
Another indicator – an increase in jobs, but it is not important. If the company goes modernization, commissioning of new equipment, some work will be automated, it is permissible, and a slight reduction in personnel. But it must be justified».
Total program of coastal fish processing enterprises of Primorsky Krai today involved 19 companies.
