Bioresources Conference seeks to develop the Arctic fisheries industry

Bioresources Conference seeks to develop the Arctic fisheries industry

The Conference on Bioresources and Fisheries in the Arctic, held in Arkhangelsk as part of Russia’s
chairmanship of the Arctic Council in 2021–2023, discussed various aspects of working with and
conserving biological resources in the Arctic, the development of the fishery industry, and the regulation
of traditional types of marine fishing.

 The Roscongress Foundation manages the events of Russia’s
chairmanship. The key event of the conference was the plenary session ‘Aquatic Biological Resources.
Fisheries and Stock Conservation in the Arctic’, during which participants discussed an analysis of the
current state of the fishery industry in the northern latitudes, new opportunities for fishing as a result of
climate change, and the effective management of these activities based on scientific data. The plenary
session was moderated by TASS News Agency Official Spokeswoman Viktoria Kladieva.
 

The participants discussed an analysis of the current state of the fishery industry in the northern latitudes,
new opportunities for fishing as a result of climate change, and the effective management of these
activities based on scientific data. Climate change is taking place and it is essential to monitor the changes
in the distribution of reserves, including in the Laptev Sea and other Arctic seas. The conference
addressed issues related to international cooperation in the study and management of fish stocks in the
Arctic. China is a long-standing partner in the fisheries sector and one of our main trading partners, and
the USSR and Norway signed an agreement on the joint management of stocks in the Barents and
Norwegian Seas in the 1970s. Experts looked at ways to develop fisheries infrastructure in the Arctic,
monitor and preserve ecosystems, and assessed the stocks of anadromous fish. 

The conference
programme also included seven roundtables and one seminar, during which experts looked at ways to
develop fisheries infrastructure in the Arctic, monitor and preserve ecosystems, and assessed the stocks of
anadromous fish.
