Rosrybolovstvo expects growth of supplies of salmon from the Far East

Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation - Head of the Federal Agency for Fishery Ilya Shestakov admits that salmon prices in Russia are rising due to the death of fish in Chile, but believes that the negative effect can be offset by an increase in supplies from the Far East

Rosrybolovstvo expects growth of supplies of salmon from the Far East
“What happened in Chile can raise prices on the world market. Probably, one should expect that prices can grow on the domestic market, but at the same time it must be said that now the consumption of Atlantic salmon that comes from Chile is not so large, according to the 2015 results of the year, fish were quite strongly represented on the shelves of Moscow and other regions from the Far East, ”said I. Shestakov at a press conference in the central office of Interfax on Wednesday in Moscow.

According to him, on the whole, the reduction in deliveries from Chile may affect the Russian market “in a favorable direction, because even more will be opportunities for companies that produce salmon in the Far East to supply red fish to the central regions at the main consumption points”.

In addition, Chilean fish in the Russian market was partially replaced by supplies from the Faroe Islands.

As I. Shestakov stressed, in order to fully feed the population with Far Eastern salmon, there is enough fish. “Now the most important thing is to shift consumer preferences towards Far Eastern salmon, which used to go mostly to countries in the Asia-Pacific region and did not constitute a counterweight to imported Atlantic salmon,” he said. “Last year, the salmon fishing season was quite successful, we hope that this year it will be the same.”

In addition, the head of the Federal Agency for Fishery recalled, it was decided to resume the harvest of Baltic salmon from 2017. "Now is determined by the generally acceptable catch order 35-36 tons of this valuable fish will also be on store shelves, ”he said.
As reported, in Chile, due to the El Niño phenomenon, 25 million salmon individuals died, which resulted in price increases by more than one and a half times.

According to SalmonEx, a company that collects data on salmon prices, by the end of April, a pound of fish went up to 5,4 with 3,5 dollars a month earlier.

According to experts Rabobank, the production of salmon in Chile in 2016 can fall by 18%, to 485 thousand tons. As a result, fishing companies in the country may suffer losses in the amount of 0,5-1 Billion dollars.

Globally, shipment is expected to be reduced by 5,3%, to 2,18 million tons.

Chile is the second largest producer of salmon in the world - the country accounts for about a quarter of all world supplies of this fish. The first place is occupied by Norway. Rabobank predicts a decrease in salmon production in Norway in 2016, by 2,1%, to 1,21 million tons.

In the Russian Federation, 2015 caught 391 in thousands of tonnes of Far Eastern salmon, which is 6% lower than the 2013 of the year (salmon catches are compared between even, non-salmon, and odd, salmon, years). For this year, the forecast is about 330 thousand tons (337 thousand tons in 2014 year).
