Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a law that gives the fishery enterprises of the Crimea and Sevastopol the right to use fish plots without bidding. We are talking about enterprises that have received permits for their activities before the reunification of the Crimea with Russia. The document is published on the official portal of legal information.

In accordance with the current legislation, fisheries enterprises that faithfully fulfilled their obligations under the contract for the use of the aquaculture area are entitled to extend the lease agreement without bidding, subject to the payment of the appropriate fee. This rule is valid throughout Russia, with the exception of the Crimea and Sevastopol.

Farms operating in the territory of the Republic of Crimea and the city of federal significance Sevastopol cannot re-register their documents for the implementation of aquaculture, which puts them in unequal competitive conditions, the developers of the law noted earlier.

In this regard, the signed law provides that fish farms – legal entities and individual entrepreneurs working in accordance with documents issued by state bodies of Ukraine and the Autonomous Republic of Crimea before Crimea reunification with Russia, are entitled to conclude an agreement on the use of fish plots before January 1, 2020 for a new term without bidding (contests, auctions).
