Russia's Northern Fishery Basin: Trends in Regulation, Fleet, and Industry
Abstract:This paper reviews the most important changes that have taken place in Russia's Northern fishery basin—the largest fishery in European Russia and a mainstay of northwest Russia's economy—since the break-up of the Soviet Union. The authors first discuss the influence on fisheries management of various federal and regional bodies of governance. They then discuss the effects of the chosen regulation strategies on the structure of the fishing fleet, delivery of catches, and the onshore fish-processing industry in northwestern Russia.
