The fish is waiting for change
What is happening in the fishing industry today is the result of the disunity and lack of a clear position of fishermen in the development issue.
- Anton Leonidovich, the proposals of various services and departments concerning the development of the fishing industry in Russia are of a very revolutionary nature. Apparently, the principle of allocation of quotas for the catch of aquatic biological resources after 2018 year will undergo changes in the near future. This was discussed at a meeting on the socio-economic development of the Arkhangelsk region, which was held June 11 by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The government insists that part of the quotas must be linked with the construction of the fleet (the principle of "quota for keel"), the rest is distributed according to the "historical principle" for 9 years or more.
- Nothing unexpected happened, such that it would not be calculated in advance and was not discussed already. 4-5 June 2014. Rosrybolovstvo held an auction to sell the right to conclude an agreement on fixing quotas for the extraction (catch) of aquatic biological resources for commercial fishing in the Far Eastern fishing basin. 44 organizations took part in the auction. At auction, 66 lots were auctioned with the total initial price of lots 31 532 393 rub. According to its results, 475,3 million rubles will be transferred to the federal budget. This is a record amount.
- However, the existing and even Russian shipbuilding capacities under construction are loaded under 100% for the long term.
- Therefore, the implementation of the "keel quota" principle is likely to be phased and coordinated with the state and development of Russian shipbuilding. And at the initial stage of implementing this principle, it will probably be combined with some other principle, perhaps the same historical one. And here we must realize that this situation is caused by a purely objective reason, and by no means is a concession, so it is hardly expected that the historical principle of all 15 or 20 years will be as crystal-clear as today. In addition, other encumbrances will be introduced with high probability, for example restrictions on the export of raw materials of low processing level, up to prohibition in the long term, the norm for 95% use of mined raw materials, and other requirements for bringing the business related to fish production to Civilized appearance.
- In fact, this can lead to a redistribution of the market. How should the fishermen act in this situation?
- It was repeatedly said that the companies of the fishing industry need to unite, develop a joint ideology, offer the state a clear plan of action for the modernization of the industry, coordinated with the main theses of the new economic and industrial policy of the country. And this is a course aimed at reducing the import of raw materials with the transition to high-value products export, resource saving, import substitution, de-fhosting, the transfer of production to Russian territory, the priority of domestic suppliers when placing industrial orders, increasing the responsibility of business to society and the state. If the fishermen do not offer their own version of a plan of action that suits them more, but fully takes into account the interests of the state, it will impose their vision of this plan on them. This vision may be such that most of the current participants in this business will be squeezed out of it. The first events in this vein have already occurred.
