According to FAF head Ilya Shestakov, a special plan has been compiled and agreed with the relevant government departments to ship between 30 and 50 thousand metric tons of fish, mainly wild salmon, this year.

The plan provides for several trips and it includes such extra measures as subsidies for newbuilding reefers and cold storage facilities.

The reefers will mostly carry wild salmon and potentially the volumes may reach 100KT subject to proper organizational measures, concluded Shestakov.
