Growth

In 2006 the firm's actual catch exceeded the quotas and amounted to 66,500 tonnes due to catches beyond the Russian EEZ in the World Ocean. As compared to 2005, the company's catches grew by 3.3% and the output of final products - by 18%.

The fishery operations were conducted by two motherships and six fishing vessels and two bareboat-charted RTMS trawlers. To increase its fishing efforts on the grounds the company also repaired its two trawlers STR Katayevo and STR Sychyovo which had been staying idle for four years.
