Russia Plans to Abandon Imports Of Mussels And Oysters
May 14, 2017 15:12


Russia plans to completely abandon imports of mussels and oysters.

The task can be solved by increasing domestic production of seafood delicacies in the Kuban and Crimea, as the Head of the Russian Federal Fisheries Agency Ilya Shestakov thinks. “We have increased our production of mussels and oysters in the Azov-Black Sea basin over the past year. The figures are significant, we believe that within two or three years we will be able to replace all those imported goods that come from other countries” – Shestakov stated.

According to the Russian Federal Fisheries Agency, Russian fishermen have caught 4.7 million tons of living aquatic resources in 2015, which is 5.5 percent higher than the record indicator of 2015 over the past 15 years. Among other things, it is proved to be possible to double the volumes of production of oysters and mussels.

As the press service of the State Fisheries Agency of Crimea reported in May, 2016, the oyster farm on Lake Donuzlav located on the western coast of Crimea intends to fully provide the Russian market with oysters by 2018.
