Peter the Great is called the Father of Russian maritime affairs. He not only laid the foundations of a great and powerful Navy, but, also introduced Russia to international trade and commerce via its mercantile marine assets. The 5 ships shown on the right of the frame are an entire fishing industry , from catching, storage, cleaning, treating to canning and all that is involved in the processes.
