Abstract

The main objective of this project was to conduct a comparative analysis between the present legislation and requirements for the produc tion of fish and fishery products in the Russian Federation and the newest EU food safety regulations. The purpose of this comparison is to provide information for the responsible Russian authorities and to develop basic guidelines for the adjustment of Russian fish quality and safety laws to the newest EU requirements, regarding fish quality and safety, which can contribute to an increase in the export of fish and fish products from Murmansk and other regions of Russia and help increase the competitiveness of Russian fish and fish products on the EU market.
