The share of herring production is more than 90%. It is used for producing
Baltic herring fillet, machine and manually gutted herring and herring roe,
as well as for the whole-fish freezing that is further processed mainly in
the Russian canning industry. Smelt, roach, perch and bream are frozen
whole as well. The rest of the products are different fish products with
scales, which are produced in the high season. These include, for example,
zander fillet, perch fillet and pike fillet.
