OREANDA-NEWS In Russia, there are prerequisites for lowering prices for pink salmon and red caviar, said the head of Rosrybolovstvo Ilya Shestakov. According to him, the price of fishermen has decreased by about one and a half times.

"From the point of view of the volume of catch and production within the framework of salmon fishing, of course, there are all prerequisites for at least pink salmon to decrease in price... We have a very good catch, the volume of production has also increased. Therefore, the price of pink salmon caviar should definitely decrease," Mr. Shestakov said on the sidelines of the Verona Eurasian Economic Forum (quoted by RIA Novosti).

In January-September, the volume of production amounted to 21.1 thousand tons, which is 2.7 times more than in the same period of 2022, and 3% more than in the same period of 2021. Mr. Shestakov has not previously ruled out that the production of red caviar in Russia will double in 2023.

Earlier it became known that restaurateurs are experiencing a shortage of canned anchovy, which is also used in the sauce for Caesar salad. Mostly the goods were supplied from Italy, but in August Russia imposed a temporary ban on the import of fish products from unfriendly countries.

Is there an alternative to European fish products — in the material of Kommersant FM "Anchovies with a friendly flavor".
