Russia decides to revise unfair quotas for Americans to catch fish in the Bering Sea


On March 23, a meeting was held, which was attended by the presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, Yuri Trutnev, the head of the Federal Agency for Fishery, Ilya Shestakov, and other officials. According to Kommersant, during the meeting, in particular, issues of revising quotas for fishing in the Bering Sea were discussed.


The production area in this region was divided according to a 1990 agreement signed by the then head of the Soviet Union's foreign economic department, Eduard Shevardnadze, and the United States Secretary of State, James Baker. The agreement provided for the division of the fish stocks of the Bering Sea in a ratio of 80 to 20 percent (about 1,4 million tons and about 400 thousand tons, respectively) in favor of American fishermen.

Now Moscow has decided to revise these unfair quotas. So, Ilya Shestakov suggested the idea of ​​increasing the share of the Russian catch or the complete abolition of existing quotas. Yuri Trutnev suggested changing this ratio to 50 to 50, which would allow Russian fishermen to increase the total allowable catch (TAC) up to 2-2,5 times.

Meanwhile, according to Alexei Osintsev, head of the Association of Fishing Fleet Owners, there are fewer and fewer large fish in the Bering Sea. In an interview with Kommersant, the expert noted that in such conditions it is necessary to reduce the catch rates for the American side, but at the same time not increase the TAC for the Russians.

    It seems that they catch a lot of fish, but the price is high for citizens. In the USSR, fish was cheaper.

      In the USSR, all prices were awry. Even gasoline was cheaper than plain water. Rampant voluntarism. Because the USSR did not economically become a world leader, and the formation itself did not live even a century ... A mistake crept in ...

    And what about the Americans? Can they also give quotas in Baikal? They have nothing to do in our waters. Kick in the neck. If necessary, then with rockets. 100% should be caught by our fishermen.

      In this case, the United States should generally ban the extraction of seafood in Russian waters, in order to preserve the flora and fauna.
      Crab is a valuable species of crustaceans, it must be protected, and not predatory destroyed, especially by foreigners.

    Bering Sea in the ratio of 80 to 20 percent (about 1,4 million tons and about 400 thousand tons, respectively) in favor of American fishermen.

    Every time you read something like this, it makes you cringe. This is how necessary it was to be a moron, that everything was so squandered, no respect for oneself ... And they build monuments to them, they are judged as traitors to the Motherland, and they need to be hung publicly.

    The Americans will not agree with our calculations. They are satisfied with the state of affairs, the Coast Guard ships are proof of this.

    The Georgian has handed over the interests of Russia to the Americans and now is the time to break this agreement.

    What are Americans in Russian waters? Stop bowing to the West. How many nasty things did the Georgian managers do in Russia.

    Is it not too late to decide (and even then - just talk among themselves ...) our "Kremlin dreamers" ..?:

    ...according to Alexey Osintsev, head of the Association of Fishing Fleet Owners, there are fewer and fewer large fish in the Bering Sea

    And how do we plan to achieve ..? Just break the international treaty ..? Then there will be even fewer fish due to uncontrolled fishing.
