Russia: Fish and Seafood Production and Trade Update

Commodities

Russia has continued with the comprehensive reorganization of its fisheries sector, from resources management to processing and distribution, through a number of government resolutions and rules to improve regulation and transparency. However, an obsolete fleet combined with an underdeveloped fishing port infrastructure, poaching, administrative barriers, and lack of investment remain as main constraints to sustainable development of the sector.
