Bulgaria's Transport Ministry has transferred the fishing ports in the northern Black Sea cities of Varna and Balchik to Ribni Resursi EOOD ("Fish Resources EOOD"), a limited liability company 100% owned by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food.

As a result of the step, the fishing ports in Bulgaria become three, according to Agriculture Minister Miroslav Naydenov.

Through this step, Bulgaria fulfills its commitment to preserve fishing jobs and the ports will be eligible to apply for EU financing for modernization under the Fisheries Operational Program.

The program envisages a total of EUR 16 M for the establishment of four fishing ports.

The port in the Black Sea town of Sozopol became the first certified and formally registered fishing port in April 2010.
