Seafood is an important source of (animal) protein in many diets around the world. It includes all types of fish, molluscs, crustaceans, aquatic plants and other aquatic animals. Seafood provides the world’s prime source of high-quality protein: 14???16% of the animal protein consumed worldwide; over one billion people rely on seafood as their primary source of animal protein.
It???s recomended that at least two portions of seafood should be consumed each week, one of which should be oil-rich.
Oil-rich fish such as mackerel or herring are rich in long chain Omega-3 oils. These oils are found in every cell of the human body, and are required for human biological functions such as brain functionality.
Whitefish such as haddock and cod are very low in fat and calories which, combined with oily fish rich in Omega-3 such as mackerel, sardines, fresh tuna, salmon and trout, can help to protect against coronary heart disease, as well as helping to develop strong bones and teeth.
Shellfish are particularly rich in zinc, which is essential for healthy skin and muscles as well as fertility.
Russian Kuril Islands region is one of the main fishery areas. Owing to it’s location along the Pacific shelf edge and the confluence of Okhotsk Sea gyre and the southward Oyashio Current, the area is surrounded by waters that are among the most productive in the North Pacific, supporting a wide range and high abundance of marine life. It???s the habitat for sea urchins, various mollusks and countless other invertebrates and their associated predators. Many species of squid provide a principal component of the diet of many of the smaller marine mammals and birds along the chain.
Alaska pollock, Pacific cod, several species of flatfish, such as Flounder and Halibut are of the greatest commercial importance.
Our presence in the Russian Far East and team of specialists in seafood enable us to source the best that fishery industry in Russia could offer and export it to various markets including Asian Pacific, Australia and New Zealand, European countries.
