Far Eastern Russia is the easternmost part of Russia, comprising the Pacific Ocean islands, coastline and a swath of eastern Siberia. The Russian Far East contains some of the world’s most diverse, productive, and healthy river and ocean ecosystems, and it is a global priority for wild salmon conservation. Russia’s three main salmon producing regions in the Far East – Khabarovsk, Sakhalin Island, and the Kamchatka Peninsula – account for a third of the Pacific Rim’s wild salmon.

South Korea officially the Republic of Korea is a country in East Asia. South Korea occupies the southern half of the Korean Peninsula, with North Korea to the north, China across the sea to the west and Japan a short ferry ride to the southeast. Fisheries production in South Korea has fluctuated most years since the late 1990s though the overall trend has been upward due to strong growth in marine aquaculture output and better fish stock management. Coastal and offshore fisheries production remains stable while aquaculture production has doubled in size during the past decade.
