Market of 500 mln is opened for fish producers. The EU market has already been opened for Georgia’s Black Sea fish and fish products.
“Today, export worth of 30 million USD products is made to Turkey, which has been actually the sole export market for Georgian fish. From today the Georgian product will have an opportunity to master European market with higher purchasing ability, over 500 million USD. This means that the sector will have more opportunities, which will be an incentive for the development of fishing and the entire industry in Georgia “, – stated Agriculture Minister Levan Davitashvili.
According to Levan Davitashvili, the next step is to submit a list of business operators, recognized by the European Commission from Georgia, after which the business operators will be able to export the Black Sea fish and fish products in the EU countries.
It should be noted that European specialists predict the success of Georgian fish flour due to high percentage of proteins.
