There isn’t any longer the problem of the shares turnover.The RF Minister of agriculture, Alexey Gordeyev, has signed the order, affirming the order of making and registration of an agreement on the share of quota transition.
There has been solved one more problem issue of the fishing-industrial complex of Russia. The RF Minister of agriculture, Alexey Gordeyev, has signed the order, affirming the order of making and registration of an agreement on transition from one person to another the share of quota in the total volume of quotas of marine living resources engaged in the industrial fishing. It’s been a long time the fishermen have been striving for. In April this year the representatives of the fishing industry of the Primorye territory, at the meeting with the RF Minister of agriculture, Alexey Gordeyev, have also been discussing this theme. Until the document signing there hasn’t just existed a legal mechanism of the quotas
secondary distribution. And if a company was planning to share its quotas with other enterprises, having made corresponding agreements on joint
activity with them, the Tax inspection was refusing to accept such documents. as a result the quotas haven’t been used fully. Thus, for example, in Primorye, last September, during the Squid season the Nakhodka Base of active sea fishing (NBAMR), the member of the Association of the
Primorye fishing-industrial enterprises, found itself in a difficult position. To catch the Squid in the Primorye sub-zone, the Government has
allocated the quota in the amount of 128 thousand MT, the biggest part of it has been given to the NBAMR. But the company, at that time hadn’t
enough catching vessels to use the quotas allocated fully, alas it was impossible to transfer the quotas available to other enterprises. Today, after the signing of the Order, in accordance with the rule in, the shares of quotas, should firstly be transferred to the fishing industrialists in the region. And only in case these shares wouldn’t be required, they can be pretended on by the fishing industrialists from other regions. It’s very important from the point of view of the local budgets supply. An agreement between them the fishermen would be able to make as for the results of the auction. “The issuance of the Order othe mechanism of the shares turnover is very important not only for the Primorye fishermen, but for the whole fishery community of our country, - has declared the APFIC President, Dmitrut Glotov, - the secondary distribution of quotas would permit to certain enterprises not only to raise significantly their economic indices. It will raise the effectiveness of the whole fishing-industrial complex work, strengthen the competitiveness of enterprises at the international market, reduce the tension between the business and the Power, between companies, between regions”.
