Vladimir Putin:"Representatives of Russia's regions will be included in a commission for establishing fishing quotas"
Representatives of Russia's regions will be included in a commission for establishing fishing quotas, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday at a session of the State Council. He said: "Yesterday, at a session of the State Council Presidium, we discussed this issue and reached an agreement, and Mikhail Fradkov [the prime minister] agreed that representatives of the regions would be included in the commission for establishing fishing quotas." The press service of the government reported on Tuesday that the government had approved fishing quotas for Pacific salmon in 2004. Under the government's resolution, 234,238.77 metric tons of salmon could be caught for commercial purposes in surface waters, internal seas and the territorial ocean of the Russian Federation (coastal fishing). The annual amount of salmon that could be caught for "research, education and cultural purposes" was approved at 12,361.35 metric tons. The quota for salmon caught "to satisfy the requirements of the indigenous population and small ethnic groups in the North, Siberia and the Far East whose way of life, employment and economy traditionally depend on fishing" was 4,355.8 metric tons. The quota for salmon caught for breeding and acclimation was 2,542.1 metric tons. Amateur and sporting fishermen can catch 2,321.53 metric tons of salmon.
