Fishing is carried out mainly in the Caspian and Aral seas, in Balkhash and Zaysan lakes, in Bukhtarma, Kapshagai and Shardara reservoirs, in the Alakol system of lakes, in the Zhayik and Kigash rivers. The main fishing regions are Atyrau — 13.1 thousand tons (29.2%), East Kazakhstan — 8.2 thousand tons (18.3%), Kyzylorda — 7.4 thousand tons (16.4%) Almaty, 6.6 thousand tons (14.6%), Mangystau — 2.3 thousand tons (5.2%) and Turkistan regions — 2 thousand tons (4.5%).

Fish farming is developing dynamically in Kazakhstan — over the past 7 years, the volume of fish grown has increased 9 times from 800 tons to more than 7 thousand tons. 180 fish farms are engaged in fish farming in the country, where more than 1 thousand people are employed.

The head of government noted the need for systematic measures for the development of the country's fisheries and instructed to prepare a draft Concept for the Development of Fisheries of the Republic of Kazakhstan by April 1, 2020.

 

“To consider the lifting of the ban on fish farms to operate in water protection zones of rivers, as well as reduce fees for the use of water resources by fishery entities, providing only payment for actual water costs. To improve the mechanism of payment for the use of fish resources, including lowering payment rates,” said Mamin.

The prime minister instructed to develop and implement an information system for traceability of fish products.

“Within a month, prepare proposals to increase the fishing time in the Caspian Sea and on the Zhayik River, as well as permit night fishing. To expand state support measures for fishery entities and include fisheries among the priority areas of the economy,” said Mamin.
