Currently only 37% of inland waters are utilized by commercial fisheries, and there is a much greater potential for inland fisheries production. Similarly, aquaculture has tremendous potential for expansion in this resource rich nation. Compared to last year, not only the volume of export changed, but also markets that import the product. In 2018, 60% of exports were to CIS countries. In 2019, 66% of frozen fish was exported to European countries.
