International Russia Continues to Experience Pollock Surplus in Domestic Market by Eugene Gerden - November 16, 2021 Russia continues to experience a surplus of pollock in the domestic market, despite the fact that the volume of its catch is 157,000 tonnes lower this year compared to 2020. Alexander Fomin, vice-president of the Association of Production and Trade Enterprises of the Fish Market, said in an interview with the Moscow-based Vechernyaya Moskva business paper that the decline of pollock catch in Russia this year will be compensated by the increase of catch of Pacific catch. Production of Pacific catch this year amounted to 535,000 tons, which is 80 percent higher than 2020. This is due to good catch of pink salmon. According to him, as of the beginning of October, a total of 4.021 million tons of fish were caught in Russia, which is 0.9 percent less than last year. The volume of cod and haddock catch this year was higher than in 2020. In the meantime, in the case of herring, the volume of its catch this year will be comparable to the previous year. Despite generally good catch this year, fish prices in Russia remain generally high, although analysts expect they will begin to decline after the beginning of subsidization of fish transportations from the Far East to the European part of Russia by the state.
