Primorye fishermen are getting ready for the Saury seasonThe demand to organize additional sea control points has been delivered to Alexey Gordeyev, the RF Minister of agriculture
At present in the Far East there’s underway an active preparation for the Saury season, which will start in mid-August. The quota for Saury this year for Primorye fishermen amounts to 45 tousand MT, i.e. increased quite 2.5 times. Saury is a very important catching specie, the products made of it are of great consumers’ demand. That’s why the fishermen are very seriously being prepared for the Saury season, especially this year when the quota has been increased. At fishing the catching vessels are crossing the economic zone border line not a once, that’s why they have to pass through a control point. The thing is that the nearest control point to the fishing ground is at about 200 nautical miles. The fishermen believe that for the normal development of the Saury catching in the
South Kurils area there are needed to be established two more control points. It’s of great importance for Primorye fishermen, as they are catching both within the exclusive economic zone and out of it. The demand to organize additional sea control points at the border of the exclusive economic zone near
South Kurils has been delivered to the Minister of agriculture, Alexey Gordeyev.
