SEOUL, July 21 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Federation has allocated for the Republic of Korea an additional quota to catch 19.5 thousand tons of pollock. An official of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries of the Republic of Korea said the decision followed a new law adopted by the parliament on preventing illegal trade of Russian crab.
In May 2012, the Russian quota for South Korea on pollock for the current year was set at 20.5 thousand tons, which is half the allowable catch in 2012. At the same time, Russia urged Seoul to pass legislation that would block the illegal export of Russian crab to South Korea via Japan.
After the adoption of the relevant law, Moscow once again raised the quota for pollock, which is extremely popular in Korea, to the previous level of 40 thousand tons.
The agreement on the quota has been reached during another, fifth, round of the 22nd session of the Russian-Korean Fisheries Commission in Moscow.
