Creation of mariculture in “Vilyuchinskaya Bay”

Complex project involves:
- the development of mariculture in Kamchatka in terms of hydrobionts cultivation.
- organization of cultivation and processing of mariculture: fish, algae, mollusks;
- reproduction of Pacific salmon;
- reproduction of the red Kamchatsky crab (building complex for production and keeping the king crab);
Kamchatka is a perspective region, both in the production and processing of fish and seafood.
Placing on the market of highly biological activity and environmentally friendly seafood guarantees a high demand for these products both in the domestic and foreign markets.

Business idea

1. Development of mariculture in Kamchatka in terms of cultivation hydrobionts:

• seaweed - kelp, Malaria;

• shellfish - mussels, scallops;

• echinoderms - sea urchins;

• cage rearing cod, trout, coho salmon.

2. Organization of the cultivation and processing of mariculture:

• fish - cod, salmon (trout, coho salmon);

• seaweed - kelp, alaria;

• shellfish - mussels, scallops, oysters.

3. Reproduction of Pacific salmon:

• restoration of natural spawning grounds;

• construction of hatchery salmon (hatchery) on  Vilyucha river on operating conditions return.

4. Reproduction of king crab:

• construction of a complex for the production and keeping of Kamchatsky crab – Vilyuchinskaya  Bay.
