Aquaculture and Mariculture: Establishing a New Sector in the Russian Far East
6 September 2017
12:45

According to the estimates of scientists from the Russian National Scientific Centre of Marine Biology, more than 2 million hectares of the marine area of the Russian Far East are suitable for cultivating mariculture products which are especially valuable and sought-after on Asia-Pacific markets. Only 1% of this area is presently being made available to business for these purposes. In 2017, the Russian Government introduced new procedures for allocating marine areas in the Russian Far East to marine farmers. Marine plots will be created in response to applications from interested investors using a specialized online service, and assigned by electronic auction. It is planned that 100% of available marine plots will be provided for the use of business by 2020. The Russian Far East is also home to the world’s most extensive wild salmon natural spawning grounds. The scientific and business communities believe that more than 200 fish farms could be established in the region to breed various species of salmon. In which regions of the Seas of Japan and Okhotsk can marine aquaculture be developed? How is the online service used to establish marine plots for aquaculture? Could this mechanism be expanded to incorporate plots for salmon farming? What support measures is the government offering marine farmers?
