The principle of replacing historical quotas for catching crab at auctions will lead to bankruptcies of many fishing companies in Russia. But it will allow the Russian fishing company Gleb Frank to gain a foothold in this niche.
Since 2019, half of the crab catch quotas in Russia will be distributed through electronic auctions. Industry participants suspect in the lobbying of such a decision of the owners of the Russian fishery company Gleb Frank and Maxim Vorobyov (the latter has already left her business).
The Russian Fishery Company (RRPK) will be replaced by the general director Andrei Teterkin. The reason for the personnel reshuffle: dissatisfaction of the main owner of the RRPK with the rate of crab catch.
The family of the Governor of Sakhalin Oblast Oleg Kozhemyako could get $ 430 million for this.
He will buy out the share of his partner Maxim Vorobyov.
