    Vostochnaya Verf shipyard laid down first crab catcher under ‘quotas for investment’ programme

    On 26 November 2019, Vladivostok, Russia based Vostochnaya Verf shipyard laid down the first crab catching ship in the Far East under the state programme for providing quotas in exchange for investments, says press center of the Primorsky Territory Administration.

    The ceremony was attended by Yury Trutnev, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation - Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District; Oleg Kozhemyako, Primorsky Territory Governor; Ilya Shestakov, head of Russian Federal Fisheries Agency; Andrey Basargin, General Director of Dalnevostochnoye Poberezhye LLC.

    “The purpose of this law is to return money earned on fisheries to Russia, so that to it was spent for construction of new plans and vessels. 14 fish processing plants and 39 vessels will be built for the Far Eastern Federal District under this law”, said Yury Trutnev.

    The crab catcher will be built for Khabarovsk based Dalnevostochnoye Poberezhye LLC, one of the fishing companies operating in the region. The company will deploy the ship for catching and transportation of live crab and for processing of the catch. It can be also used as a long-liner and a shrimp trawler in unlimited area of navigation. The ship’s ice class foresees its operation in brash ice of up to half a meter thick. The vessel is 63 meters long and 10.6 meters wide. The hull dimensions take into consideration waves typical for the Northern part of the Pacific Ocean and adjacent seas. When catching and carrying live crab the crew numbers 21 persons, when used as a processor – 30 persons. Maximum speed – 14.5 knots, endurance – 45 days.

    According to Oleg Sidenko, General Director of Vostochnaya Verf JSC, the shipyard has all workshops required for the entire shipbuilding cycle.

    All in all, Vostochnaya Verf will build seven fishing ships: two ships for catching and transportation of live crab, two crab catching and processing ships and three long-liners for cod fishery. The contract has been signed for construction of crab catchers.

    Half of quotas for catching valuable bioresources will be distributed through a competition among legal entities and individual entrepreneurs. The federal budget will get additional RUB 142 billion. The auction resulted in providing crab quotas in the Far East for construction of 25 crab catchers. In 2019, investments of Far East fishing companies in construction of fishing ships and onshore processing plants will exceed RUB 27 billion.
