VOLOGDA, February 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s northern Vologda region produced about 15 tonnes of black caviar in 2013, the region’s department of agriculture and food resources said. The authority reports the production made 70 percent of the entire legal market of black caviar in Russia.
Noteworthy, the region practically does not have natural water reservoirs where sturgeon species would live. The region produces black caviar at the only enterprise, Diana, which is a part of the Russian Caviar House group of companies.
“Last year, the region offered a state programme to 2020 to develop fishery, where the financing will be 182 million roubles (5.2 million dollars),“ deputy governor Nikolai Guslinsky told Itar-Tass. “Presently we are leaders in production of natural sturgeon caviar. With the programme, we shall develop here other directions of aqua cultures, including fish farms for sturgeon.”
Local experts say it is profitable only for big companies to produce sturgeon professionally.
“The enterprise in Volgograd increases caviar production with every year, which is a result from effective analyses, management, use of innovations and from colossal investments,” the experts say.
The Vologda region fished in the region in 2013 carp - 82 tonnes and sturgeon - 51 tonnes. Fishery organisation produced almost 1.5 thousand tonnes of freshwater fish, which is 22-percent growth year-on-year.
