VLADIVOSTOK, September 12 (Itar-Tass) - The 8th International Fishermen Congress has brought together over 200 delegates from eight countries - Germany, Iceland, Canada, Norway, the Netherlands, the United States, Japan and Russia’s regions - Kaliningrad, Sakhalin, Murmansk, Magadan and the Primorsky and Kamchatka territories.
The two-day forum will discuss the state of the Customs Union’s fishing market, a cluster mechanism to upgrade technologies of the fishing complex’s management and investment attractiveness of Russia’s fishing industry. Delegates will see a presentation on the creation of a fishing cluster in the Primorsky Territory.
The International Fisherman Congress has been held in Vladivostok since 2003. Recommendations taken at the forum are often reflected in Russia’s laws. Thus, fishermen in Vladivostok have repeatedly raised the issue of introducing long-term quotas for fishing enterprises. In 2008 it was decided to preserve a production sharing principle while issuing catch quotas up to ten years.
The forum focuses on pressing issues for the fishing industry. Last year it was devoted to liberalization of foreign economic activity in the fishing industry within the World Trade Organization. Over 700 delegates from Russia and 16 other countries participated in the two-day debates.
