The volume of fish farming in Kazakhstan does not exceed 2%
“We need to understand that demand for fish products is growing, and therefore we can not rely only on the amount of fish, harvested from natural populations. Our task is to remove the load, which is undergoing a natural fish population, and they are incredible. It can be achieved only through development of aquaculture,” Y. Nysanbayev has said.
According to him, the volume of fish farming in Kazakhstan with respect to the catch of natural water bodies does not exceed 2%. Every year, 40-45 thousand tons of fish fished in the waters, 500-700 tons produced per year, about 45-50 thousand tons of ocean fish species imported in the country.
