Roundtable "Will Generation Z Start Catching Fish? Problems of Education and Science"
The fisheries industry is facing a current shortage of young specialists today. All sectoral educational institutions have developed modern work experience training programmes, but after graduation, only a small number of graduates go on to work at enterprises in the industry. Generation Z is a term for people born between 1997 and 2012, i.e., those who are now 9 to 24 years old: schoolchildren, students, and young professionals. These are people who are unable to separate the virtuality on their smartphones from reality and live in a world of tomorrow’s technologies. Who do the current ‘zoomers’ want to become? What can the fishing industry offer them besides hard work, the remoteness of fisheries, and an undeveloped infrastructure? None of this helps to enhance the appeal of such professions as fisherman, fish processor, or fish breeder in the industry, which today is experiencing an acute shortage of skilled young personnel. The number of young people in fishery sciences has not increased recently, either. Are these industry or generational problems? Associations and councils of young scientists, whose age has already risen to 35 years old, together with the leadership of universities, scientific institutes, and fishermen, are looking for solutions to these issues.
- New trends on the fishery industry labour market.
- What could motivate young people have to work in the fishery industry?
- Is the current level of professional education in Russia sufficient and does it meet the needs of the industry’s economy?
- Will structural and technological changes in the industry help solve the staffing problem?
- Can a person of today survive (at sea) without a smartphone and tablet?
- What drives professional and scientific growth in fisheries science?

Plenary session "Impact of the Pandemic: New Challenges for the Fisheries Industry"
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted on all aspects of life. The crisis has completely changed our view of the world and how we do business. Virtually all market participants have inevitably suffered losses, and only a few have become stronger and moved on to the next level. Remote work and the development of online services have become new trends that have helped the industry in overcoming the crisis and creating new opportunities, but fundamental changes in fishing and fish processing are needed in order to move forward, such as the introduction of new technologies, ship construction, robotization, digitalization, and so on.
Implementation of an effective programme for developing the fishing industry in the post-crisis period requires not only investments, but effective government support, as well. The world has finally realized that we are all in the same boat, and what each person does determines how bountiful a catch is or how successful a trip to sea can be.
- Government support measures for the industry: Russian realities and international experience.
- Cross-border cooperation and the redistribution of foreign sales markets.
- Transition to a non-resource-based model: deep processing as a means for enhancing the added value of exported fish products.
- Impact of production localization on the development of the Russian fishery industry.
Award ceremony for the winners of the FishCorr Contest
The FishCorr contest is held between publishing houses, members of the Russian media, and authors who write about the development of the fishery industry, the restoration of aquatic biological resources, and the environment. The contest has been supported by the Federal Agency for Fisheries since 2019.
The award ceremony for the contest winners will be held at the Global Fishery Forum.
Roundtable "We Have Fish. Who Wants It?"
Russia actively promoted fish in the 1930–1960s. The government’s interest in what the public ate was clear from advertising campaigns, introduction of a ‘fish’ day, and involvement of heads of state in this promotion. Yet all these achievements collapsed along with the USSR and its economy. Over the past 20 years, fishing has managed to find its way out of the chaos but processing and production have lagged far behind. There has not been any marketing in this segment and the government has shown virtually no interest in promoting fish products among the public as a beneficial health product.
This all changed in 2020. First, foreign fish markets collapsed owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, then China closed its ports to fish from Russia on the pretence of coronavirus. Fishermen encountered a shortage of processing and refrigeration facilities in Russia, with poor logistics and a lack of interest among Russians in fish in the quantities that could be supplied to the domestic market. Now the main objective of the government, the fishing industry regulator, the fishing community, the fish-consuming public and retail networks is to find a common denominator between the opportunities of Russian fishermen and consumers’ needs.
- The current situation on the consumer fish market in Russia.
- How can we motivate young people and the 30+ generation to consume fish? Tools for promoting fish products.
- Global experience in fish promotion: how are Japan, Korea, and the United States combating the falling demand for fish among adolescents and young people?
- How can we raise a generation of fish consumers? What kind of fish are fed to children at school?
- Working with brand reputation: how to turn the modern consumer’s three main narratives “I don’t like it, I don’t eat it”, “I don’t know, I don’t eat it”, and “I don’t believe it, I don’t eat it” into positives? Success stories.
- Need for government interventions: how might it affect consumer demand for fish and their availability?
- How can we reduce the price of ice for the final retail price of fish and increase the turnover of fish products in stores?
Roundtable "Russia and Iceland: Progress and Perspectives of Cooperation in the Fisheries Field"
Iceland is known to many in the world as a place of many volcanic eruptions, which names are sometimes difficult to pronounce. At the same time, the country with a population less than a sleeping district in Moscow city, has become a world leader in the fishing industry. Icelandic Sea Tech companies are among the best in their field and Iceland is internationally known for its prominent Sea Tech industry with its innovative technologies and solutions.
The Icelandic “model” is driven by innovative solutions with focus on sustainability and top handling and utilization of the catch. The industry is very efficient, and the main criteria is obtaining maximum quality and value out of the products by using the most advanced technology and equipment.
For the past few years Iceland and Russia have developed a very strong co-operation in vessel design, shipbuilding, fishing and processing equipment. Icelandic SeaTech companies have supplied to the Russian market new ships and processing plants as well as new technologies with very good results. They have openly shared their achievements, knowledge and know-how in the production and maintenance of high-quality equipment.
Iceland is offering and delivering almost all required solutions in the fisheries industry. At this round table you will hear more about new developments and achievements as speakers from Icelandic companies will tell you about the progress of the industry in Iceland, good cooperation with their Russian partners and new approached which could be offered to the Russian market.
We hope that you will be able to attend and hear presentations by Icelandic experts, and especially to participate in the discussion.
Iceland can offer and do almost anything. Ask how?

Round Table "Ecological refrigeration technologies for the fish processing industry of the Russian Federation"
Roundtable "How to Get Quality Fish to the End Consumer"
Catching and breeding fish are extremely important, but are not the only processes affecting the volume and quality of the products that end up on consumers’ tables. Equally important are issues related to proper storage and fast delivery. Since the usual export channels have been closed owing to the pandemic, it has become even more urgent to saturate the domestic market with quality fish products. This situation has revealed another bottleneck: Russia simply does not have enough processing and refrigeration facilities today for storing all the products caught and produced. And, whereas processing has already been taken under state control and quotas allocated for construction of new processing facilities, optimization of logistics and storage poses a new challenge to the industry.
- Establishment of a special priority development area for the needs of the fishing industry (an ‘archipelago’ of fish processing plants, refrigeration and logistics facilities).
- Will the Northern Sea Route become the main one for supplying Far Eastern fish to central Russia? Can it compete with fishing in Russia’s North?
- Optimization of existing and development of new transport hubs to provide convenient logistics for the domestic market and exports.
- Sufficiency of processing and refrigeration facilities in the European part of Russia.
- Use of AI in tracking and distributing logistics flows.
Session hosted by the Food and Agriculture Organization: "Regional Fishery Bodies Established within the FAO Framework"
The main purpose of the Session is to review activities and work carried out by regional fishery bodies (RFBs) over the past years.
A special emphasis will be placed on entities whose geographic scope encompasses the region of Europe and Central Asia (EIFAAC, CACFish and GFCM). Although the Russian Federation is not a member of these organs, the country cooperates with them, as well as with a number of their subsidiary structures.
The Session will facilitate better understanding by participants of tasks, functions and achievements of RFBs in sustainable fisheries, aquaculture resources management, climate change mitigation, water and coastal ecosystems restoration, biodiversity conservation and resolution of socioeconomic problems of the sector.

International Conference "Aquaculture: A Driver of Global Fish Production"
According to the FAO, global aquaculture virtually equals classic fisheries in volume. In Russia, this industry entered a new stage of development about five years ago: the regulatory framework is being updated and expanded, new lands and coastal zones are being allocated for aquafarms, environmental requirements are being revised, new technologies are being introduced to minimize manual labour and improve the quality of growing and tracking products, and polyculture technologies are being developed.
The highest levels of government are paying close attention to the development of aqua and mariculture in Russia, including as part of the Fisheries Industry Development Strategy and the National Far East Development Programme. Even though there is still a lot of work to be done, aquaculture in Russia is vying to become a development driver not only for the of the fishery industry but also for individual regions.
- The current state of and issues facing domestic aqua and mariculture.
- State support and possible benefits for organizing fish farming.
- The role of domestic scientific developments in fish selection and breeding.
- Can aquaculture become a driver of the socioeconomic development for Russia’s regions?
- How do the processes of rearing aquatic biological resources affect the ecology of water bodies?
- Best international practices: what foreign partners’ experience can be applied under Russian realities?
Roundtable "Efficient Aquaculture Farming"
Aquaculture farms face similar challenges: how to create and make production profitable without undermining product quality? Upscaling of farms does not always result in a corresponding increase in profits, as unforeseen risks can arise. Today, a lot of attention is being focused on the aquaculture and mariculture industry, and new technologies and services are emerging for making farms more efficient.
- Where to start with planning an aquaculture farm and what the best practices are?
- Cage aquaculture vs. a recirculating aquaculture system: advantages and special features of each.
- How do you raise and feed healthy fish? Are there any worthy domestic manufacturers of planting material, feed, and veterinary medicines to replace foreign ones?
- The search for and introduction of high-protein substitutes for fishmeal.
- Aquaculture of the future: breakthrough technologies, digitalization, and growth drivers.
