ABOUT COMPANY

Russian Fishery Company

Russian Fishery Company is one of the largest Russian producers of wild white fish, one of the leading producers of Pollock in Russia and globally. Its annual quota for fish harvesting is more than 300 thousand tons (depending on annual TAC, 337 thousand tons in 2021) .

RFC is a vertically integrated company - from wild fish harvesting to on-board processing, producing high value-added products. Its fishing species are Alaska Pollock (more than 80%), Pacific Herring and others. 

The Russian Fishery Company includes large Far Eastern fishing companies (TURNIF, INTRAROS, Vostokrybprom, Sovgavanryba). 

Its primary commercial fishing grounds are in the Bering Sea and The Sea of Okhotsk, some of the cleanest oceanic areas of the entire globe. The Company's large fishing vessels are well suited to work in all fishing areas and under all climate conditions. The efficiency of RFC's fishing process, as well as the environmental responsibility, are confirmed by an MSC certificate.

In 2020 RFC has put into operation a plant for pollock and herring processing "Russian Pollock" with a capacity of more than 100 tons of finished products per day in the Far East.

In the same year, the first supertrawler of the new RFC fleet "Vladimir Limanov" was handed over to the company.

COMPANY STRUCTURE


STRATEGY

RFC strategic goal is to become the world leader in Pollock harvesting and processing.

Key priorities of RFC strategy:

·       Fleet operational efficiency increase

·       Development of processing and increase of high value-added products share

·       Orientation to the end customer and production of  “ready to cook” and “ready to eat” products

·       Innovative technologies implementation and HSE improvement 

By the end of 2025, according to the fleet renewal program, RFC plans to build 11 modern new generation supertrawlers with an increased ice class and greater productivity. 10 of them will be built under the state program of investment quotas. The first supertrawler was handed over to the company in 2020.

The new vessels will bring additional benefits to the company’s employees, as crews will see significant improvements in working conditions, more time-off, as well as further attention paid to health and safety conditions. The brand-new equipment will allow the company to produce Pollock surimi and increase the overall output of high value-added products. 

Commissioning of new supertrawlers and onshore processing facilities will allow RFC to process up to 100% of the catch into high value-added products and increase the quota for catching Pollock, which will make the Russian Fishery Company  the global leader in this sphere
