Primorye economy hit by Kamchatka law on salmon klondyking

August 8, 2007 16:16

The Government of Primorsky Krai (capital Vladivostok) has been scrutinizing economic fallouts of Kamchatka's law regulating klondyking on the salmon grounds in the region.

More specifically, Kamchatka authorities have decided that the profits from salmon operations in the province's waters should remain in its budget and, towards that end, they have issued a law prohibiting aliens to receive salmons on the region's grounds.

Due to the new law, Primorye-based companies bear especially large economic losses, though the province's administration has been unaware of accurate results of the current season yet.

As an example, last year fishing vessels and motherships coming from Vladivostok-led Primorye received ca.15,000 tonnes of salmons in the waters of Kamchatka.
