For reference

According to official data of the Federal Agency for Fishery (Rosrybolovstvo), aquaculture production increased by 35.7% in the Russian Federation over three quarters of 2019 against the same period in 2018 to amount to 202.8 thousand tn.

 Currently provision is made in the project of the development strategy of the Russian fisheries industry for increased volume of aquaculture production practically thrice by 2030 – up to 600,000 tn. According to many specialists, such performance seems quite possible.
