PYONGYANG, December 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and North Korea set quotas for usage of biological resources in 2014. This said head of the international cooperation department at the Federal Fisheries Agency Sergei Simakov on Friday.
Delegates to the 27th session of the Russian-North Korean Fisheries Commission that took place in Pyongyang on December 24-26 also discussed joint projects, exchanged information on reserves of biological resources in the two countries’ exclusive economic zones and signed a joint protocol.
“As of January 1, 2014, temporary instructions for North Korean vessels’ reports on fishing inside Russia’s economic zone enter into force. This document also encompasses other countries, including Japan and South Korea,” Simakov said.
Proposals reflected in the joint protocol “are targeted at enhancing economic cooperation between Russia and North Korea,” he said. North Korean partners “have been proposed several types of Russian biological resources, of them most popular is squid.”
Within the session’s framework a special group on scientific and technical cooperation held its meeting. North Korean researchers were interested in an opportunity to breed Arctic cisco in North Korea’s ponds. The group also focused on fishing control and statistics.
The session brought together representatives of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Federal Border Service and institutions subordinated to the Federal Fisheries Agency.
