March 09, 2010

In February, 2010, the cargo turnover of the Murmansk Sea Fishing Port (MSFP) grew by 22.7% as compared to last year, reaching 27 thousand tons. This was reported by the press-service of the company with reference to the information received from Anton Artemiev, Assistant Director General of OJSC MSFP. During the month under report, the port processed 92 vessels of that 26 heavy-tonnage vessels.

“The growth in transshipment is caused by early beginning of the capelin fishing season. But March previews are deplorable. Having took approximately 40 thousand tons of cargo in March, today we have orders only for 23 thousand tons. Ship-owners do not intend to sell capelin, so many vessels are finishing the fishing season and change to another fish. From the beginning of the year, we have taken 22 thousand tons of capelin the major part of which is stored in the port refrigerators. And the shipment has started only these days. 30 insulated food containers have already been dispatched to the central regions of the country,” said Anton Artemiev.

The Murmansk Sea Fishing Port is a present-day highly-mechanized enterprise of the Northern Region specializing in transshipment of cargoes transported by fishing vessels, factory ships and transporting refrigerators. The Russian Federation in the person of the Federal Agency for the Administration of Federal Property and the Single-Purpose State Institution under the Government of the Russian Federation “The Russian Federal Property Fund” own 100% of the port shares. In 2009, the MSFP cargo turnover grew by 36% as compared to the preceding year and reached 225 thousand tons of fish.
