Order of February 10, 2021 No. 295-r

The list of aquatic biological resources allowed for commercial catch has been supplemented with new items. The order was signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

These include blue whiting, European sardines, blue pike, sea bream, rock, long-thorn and giant Tasmanian crab, brody crab, deep-sea shrimp, Argentine and northern squid and common octopus.

Industrial extraction of aquatic biological resources included in the list is permitted, in particular, in the internal sea waters of Russia, in the territorial sea, in the exclusive economic zone and in areas where international agreements in the field of fishing are in force.

Expanding the list will increase the volume of fishing and processing, as well as expand export supplies. An increase in the profits of representatives of the industry will contribute to an increase in budget revenues.
