Updating the fishing fleet should go according to clearly defined plans. New shipbuilding contracts are useless
This issue was discussed by representatives of coastal fishing enterprises at a meeting of the Far Eastern Fishing Council. At present, 54 fishing vessels are to be built by Russian shipyards in the country. Of these, 39 are for fishing companies in the Far East.
The plan was approved by Rosrybolovstvo as part of the state program for the implementation of investment quotas. Recall that the corresponding law was signed by the President of the country 4 years ago. The bottom line is that the investor who has obtained the right to fish, takes on the obligation to build new fishing vessels. Thus, the state intends to renew the fleet and modernize the coastal infrastructure of the fishing industry.

In this situation, according to the Far East, It is very important not to disrupt the schedules for the planned construction. Otherwise, the scale of the whole state idea may be threatened. Indeed, only in Primorye 15 contracts for the construction of new ships should be implemented - 8 crab fishing vessels are building the Nakhodka Shipyard and 7 - the Eastern Shipyard. For the development of the fishing industry in the region, new vessels will become a powerful help.
Gennady Martynov, president of the association of fisheries enterprises of the Primorsky Territory:
- Our shipyards never built large vessels. And what we are starting to acquire today, it comes with certain difficulties, breaks out of the schedule, and for a fisherman, non-compliance with the schedule is actually a deprivation of quotas. They will punish not the shipbuilder of the shipyard, but the fishermen. This civil shipbuilding process, it is very complex. And today, what is, it is necessary to realize, and then look around.
