Factory mother ship Vsevolod Sibirtsev, operated by Far East fishing company Dobroflot, docked in Nakhodka a few days ago after completing a 230-day trip across several fishing areas.
Vsevolod Sibirtsev will be landing 42,500,000 cans of seafood produced during the long trip, as wall as 3000 tonnes of fishmeal and 1200 tonnes of fish oil, produced from the 37,000 tonnes of fish processed on board during its 230 days at sea. Canned production is supplied to the domestic retail market.
From July to December, Vsevolod Sibirtsev was stationed in the South Kuril zone, receiving catches of ivasi sardine and mackerel, before heading north at the end of 2021 to the northern part of the Sea of Okhotsk to process herring and pollock.
Seiner-trawlers Sedanka, Sterlet, Dmitry Shevchenko and trawler Viking kept Vsevelod Sibirtsev supplied with catches.
After Vsevelod Sibirtsev docked in Nakhodka, with a brass band playing on the quay, a number of the crew were awarded commendations and bonuses.
According to Dobroflot, 98% of the crew of Vsevolod Sibirtsev were vaccinated prior to sailing, which resulted in no outbreaks of Covid-19 during the long voyage.
