The Russian Far East is home to the largest component of Russia's fishing industry, and an heir to the legacy of the great Soviet fleets of the past. This set of articles on the Russian Far East fisheries, based on twelve visits made to the region by author Terry Johnson, among other sources, tells the story of fisheries management, allocation, fishing boats and gear, seafood products, and marketing and trading. Johnson, University of Alaska Fairbanks professor of fisheries, also reveals insights into Russian Far East mariculture, fishing collectives, Fisheries Technical University, the future of the fishery, and the challenges the industry faces under major economic and bureaucratic changes.
