The regional fisheries agency calculated that the current catch is 110 percent of last year's level and meets the objectives of the state program "Development of the fishery complex".
The main share in the production is taken by pollock - almost 427 thousand tons, herring - over 80 thousand tons, and squid - about 43 thousand tons. Also, the enterprises caught more than 26 and 16 thousand tons of sardine 'Iwasi' and pacific cod, respectively.

By the way, they want to leave up to five percent of the catch in the region. This initiative was earlier made by the head of the region, Oleg Kozhemyako. In his opinion, this will make the region's fish products available to the inhabitants of the region.
Also, the availability of pollock, pink salmon, herring and other types of fish in the region is ensured through the social initiative "Primorskaya Ryba". It has been operating for two years now and gives Primorye residents the opportunity to purchase fish twenty percent cheaper
