PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, February 21 (Itar-Tass) —— Kamchatka’s fishing companies harvested more than one million tons of sea foods in 2011, a record-breaking figure for the past 20 years, Kamchatka minister of the fishing industry Vladimir Galitsyn said on Tuesday.
“According to preliminary data, Kamchatka harvested 1.002 million tons. Companies are still reporting their 2011 results, and it means that the figure will be still bigger,” he said and added that final results will be available in a month’s period.
Galitsyn said Kamchatka is Russia’s only region boasting such results. “We had such figures in early 1990s,” he noted. “Later on, we lived through a slump and could not regain our positions for a long time.”
Russia’s overall harvest of bio resources in 2001 was about 4.3 million tons, a spokesman for the Kamchatka government said. Thus, Kamchatka’s fishermen accounted for about a fourth of Russia’s total output.
