The long-awaited renewal of the fishing fleet in Russia has finally started. The first round of distribution of governmental incentives for building of new fishing vessels – investment quotas, which constitute up to 20% of Russia’s total quota, was planned for December 2017. As of today, more than 30 boats have already been ordered and 15 new vessels have been keel-laid. The new Russian fishing quota distribution system will be operative from 01.01.2019. Norwegian companies are already in the game, winning tenders for ship-design and delivering of different kinds of ship- and fishing gear, so if your company is working within the industry and has capacity and interest to go international: this is the right time to be in Russia!
