Norwegians to help boost Karelia's trout production

May 15, 2007 12:09

Karelia, a Russian province bordering on Finland, and the Norwegian province of Troms signed a new protocol on cooperation between the regions in 2007-2009 with the document focusing on aquaculture development in Karelia among other issues.

Troms fish farmers have gained wide experience in aquaculture operations and in 2006 the harvest of fish farmed in the Norwegian province has reached ca.50,000 tonnes. In the meantime, Karelian farmers cultured only 7000 tonnes in 2006, but already by the year 2013 the province's farmers are planning to increase the output of market-size farmed trout nearly two times.
