RABAT, February 15 (Itar-Tass) – Morocco showed its interest in getting the results of Russia’s marine fisheries research in West Africa, Andrei Krainiy, the head of the Federal Agency for Fisheries, told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“The thing is that Russia justly ranks the world’s number one by research in West Africa,” he said. “We have not left this region and we have accumulated thirty-year-long research work. Nobody has such a database as we do and we share this information with Moroccans free of charge.”
Explaining Morocco’s such great interest in Russia’s experience, Krainiy noted that “now all are interested in rational use of their resources and takes efforts not to undermine their reserves.”
The two countries prepare “a big project on aquaculture,” he said. It envisages “transfer of fish breeding methods and technologies” to Moroccans.
Moreover, Krainiy highlighted that Rabat wants to train Moroccan students in Russia’s fisheries institutions and to attract Russia’s investments into the kingdom’s fishing industry.
Earlier in the day Andrei Krainiy and Moroccan Agriculture and Fisheries Minister Aziz Akhannouch signed a new four-year agreement on cooperation in fisheries.
