Russia: Development of Aquaculture Sector in Russia

Commodities

Development of the aquaculture sector in Russia is far below its potential. Current annual production is estimated at 160,000 MT, or three to four percent of total fish and seafood production in Russia. Russia’s share of world aquaculture production is estimated at only 0.2 percent. Lack of government support, outdated equipment and production technologies, as well as a deficit in feed, are major constraints to further development of the sector.
