Development of fisheries in Russia allow to extend the life expectancy of Russians
Recovery in the fisheries will allow the Russians to extend life, and the country to join the “club 80+”, that is among those States where the population mostly lives up to 80 years or more.
These countries include France, Germany and Japan. This was stated by participants “a round table” in the Federation Council devoted to scientific support for fisheries and aquaculture.
Fish products contain many healthy substances. Therefore, it is necessary to maintain and increase the volumes of these products. According to research, it is at least 23.5 kg per year.
In addition, one of the tasks set by the government is to increase the exports of fish. Last year it was estimated at about $ 4, 5 billion dollars. By 2024 it is planned to increase it by half. And this, in the opinion of round table participants, it is necessary to invest more in the industry and innovate.
“And here lately we are confronted with contradictory information and statistics that together greater efforts in this direction we observed, or a reduction or slowdown, the number of scientific expeditions, which reduces the quality and reliability of our forecasts,” — said the Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on agrarian and food policy and environmental management Sergey Mitin.
At the end of the meeting, recommendations were adopted for the government and relevant agencies. For example, the update of the research fleet, increase funding and implementation of technologies for waste-free processing.
