MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
By 2023, Russia will be able to switch to independent processing of all fish caught in the country thanks to fish processing plants being built in the Far East. Deputy Prime Minister – Plenipotentiary of the President in the Far Eastern Federal District (DFO) Yuri Trutnev told reporters on Wednesday in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.
“I have no doubts about this: the fishermen are already talking about the fact that, in principle, taking into account all the factories under construction, by 2023 they can fully process all the fish that is caught on the territory of the Russian Federation,” Trutnev said.
As the Governor of the Kamchatka Territory Vladimir Solodov noted, the construction of such plants is carried out according to a specially introduced mechanism of investment quotas.
“In Kamchatka, thanks to investment quotas, 50 billion rubles were invested in the development of coastal processing and modernization of the fleet, four factories were built, a dozen and a half ships are under construction. It is very important that these are not rotational, not seasonal, but year-round jobs, this is the creation of tax potential, this is the creation of added value, but it is also the provision of high-quality fish products to the residents of Kamchatka, “the head of the region emphasized.
The mechanism for allocating quotas in exchange for investments provides that the state allocates quotas to companies for the extraction of aquatic biological resources in exchange for the development of extraction (construction of a fleet) or processing (construction of factories). The program also assumes that the state subsidizes 20% of the value of the vessel to stimulate the renewal of the fishing fleet.
According to the FEFD embassy, thanks to the mechanism of investment quotas in the Far East, in the coming years, 14 fish processing plants will be built, of which nine have already begun work in Kamchatka, Primorye and the Sakhalin Region.
