The industry in brief

The Russian authorities in 2018 implemented a long-term development and growth strategy plan (towards 2030) for the Russian fisheries, fish processing and aquaculture sector, which is intended to support and boost the development of the sector and assure that these industries can meet the ambitious goal of doubling Russia’s revenues from seafood exports by 2024.

Strategy development plan

The Strategy development plan is targeting both the aquaculture, processing and fisheries industries in Russia. Russia’s aquaculture industry is aiming at tripling its production by 2030 and the Russian fishing fleet has started undergoing a complete renewal with many new fishing vessels under construction and new processing plants being currently build across the country – all scheduled to enter into operation between 2021 – 2023. The Russian fishing industry is undergoing a true transformation and upgrade these years.

Modernization of the Russian fishing industry

The investment quotas program was introduced by the Russian government in 2017 as an incentive to encourage national fisheries and companies operating within the fishing industry in Russia to upgrade their ageing fleets and have new ships built at Russian shipyard.  

Three application rounds for the quotas program in 2018/2019 have resulted in projects for construction of more than 40 fishing vessels towards 2025 and more than 20 coastal fish processing facilities, meaning a considerable modernization of the Russian fishing fleet and fish processing industry. This process may over the coming years offer new opportunities for Danish equipment and solutions suppliers to these industries.  

Russian Fishery Company (RFC) is one of the big players in Russia, who has actively used the new mechanism, and is constructing a series of new super trawlers and processing plants under the program. The super trawlers are launched from the beginning of 20’s onwards, the first processing plant was put in operation in 2019 in the Murmansk region and more processing plants are underway.
