Fishery has traditionally been a mainstay in the economy of north-western Russia. The article reviews the most important changes that have taken place in Russia’s northern fishery basin – the largest fishery in European Russia – since the break-up of the Soviet Union. The authors first discuss the influence on fisheries management of various federal and regional bodies of governance. Next, they discuss the effects of the chosen regulation strategies on the structure of the fishing fleet, delivery of catches and the on-shore fish-processing industry in north-western Russia.
