Fishing Catch Up 6.2%

Fishing vessels have caught 317,000 tons of fish since the beginning of the year, a 6.2 percent year-on-year increase, the Federal Fisheries Agency reported.

The catch was up in all waters except the Caspian Sea. The bulk of the overall harvest typically comes from the far eastern basin, where 235,700 tons of fish have been hauled in this year. That was an increase of only 900 tons year on year. Russian vessels netted 32,600 tons of fish in the waters of other countries, 200 tons more year on year.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
