At the moment the St.-Petersburg-based is building 14 fishing vessels with all boats being at different stages of construction, reports Megafishnet.com.
According to Korabel.ru, the fishing fleet began its massive modernization 3 years ago in 2018. The state program of investment fishing quotas for the support of shipbuilding has greatly contributed to the development.
