    Part I Statistics and main indicators

    Part I of the Fishery and Aquaculture Country Profile is compiled using the most up-to-date information available from the FAO Country briefs and Statistics programmes at the time of publication. The Country Brief and the FAO Fisheries Statistics provided in Part I may, however, have been prepared at different times, which would explain any inconsistencies.

    Country briefPrepared: September 2019

    The Russian Federation has the largest land area of any country, with a vast Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

    Total capture production in 2017 was 4.87 million tonnes, the highest level reached since 1991. For aquaculture production, the Russian Federation reached an all-time high level of 185000 tonnes in 2017, which was more than double of that in 2000 and recovering from the 5 percent decline experienced in 2015 compared to 2014 due primarily to the heavy loss in the sea farming of Atlantic salmon caused by disease outbreak. The fleet was estimated at 1 534 large fishing vessels (2017), all over 12 meters LOA with smaller boats excluded from the estimate. In 2017, 313 801 people were estimated to be employed in the fisheries and aquaculture sectors with about 280 000 people estimated to be employed in inland and marine fisheries, across all time-use categories.

    In 2017, imports of fish and fishery products were valued at USD 1.98 billion, up 18% on 2016 but still well below the levels reached in 2014 before the import ban. Exports were valued at USD 4.51 billion in 2017. Per capita fish supply amounted to 20.3 kg in 2017.

    In October 2007, the State Committee for Fishery was re-established as an institution directly under the Federal Government. In addition, coordination of enforcement of marine biological resources is the task of another federal body, the Border Service, Pogranichnaya Sluzhba (PS), subordinated to the Federal Security Service (FSB). In 2013, the first ever Law on aquaculture was launched in order to provide a legal framework for aquaculture development.
