The authors present an overview of fishing operations during the 1960s in the Baltic Basin, an important fishing region of the Soviet Union. These expeditions comprised different fishing vessels, among which were fishing, catch processing and cargo vessels. In order to optimize fishing efficiency, a course of action was taken in the late 1960s and early 1970s to convert the antiquated and obsolete small and medium capacity fleet with new medium and large-capacity ships. The outcome was the development of the ROS- and RDOMS-type fish-factory ships. The first voyages of the ROS PETROGRADSKIY, ROS VYBOGIRSKIY, and RDOMS VOLGA demonstrated the efficiency of the fish-processing complex and the correctness of their engineering concepts and solutions. Specifications and the operation of these new fishing vessels are presented and their advantages are discussed. The authors conclude by showing the effectiveness of these integrated fishing vessels in reducing operating expenses and increasing productivity.
