Abstract: The logistical support of commodity circulation restructuring on the Russian market of fish products require the appropriate investments, the priorities are particularly acute in the Far East region where the logistics capabilities are limited and are absent often. The activization of such a development institution use as the Free Port of Vladivostok (FPV) is the tool for the investment activity improvement within the region in general and within fish logistics in particular. A deeper study of the factors which determine the effect of FPV on the development of the logistic infrastructure in Primorsky Krai will enable a better understanding of the laws on which the modern economic processes are based and will allow to assess the prospects of this state policy instrument. The traditional methods of scientific analysis, economic and mathematical statistics, the technical-economic and logical analysis, the graphical modeling, etc. were used as the methodological basis of the study. The necessity and the essential need for investment in the fish logistics of the region is substantiated. The theoretical aspects of a free port mode application practice were revealed. FPV benefits and preferences were studied. The estimation of changes in the fish logistics in the region was performed. This estimation took place during the years of market reforms. The barriers of investment development for Primorye fish logistics were determined unavoidable under FPV terms. The analysis showed that FPV mode does not solve the problems of a more effective use concerning the national vehicles with the aim of fish enterprise structure interest reorientation from the foreign to the domestic market. The main result will be related to closer integration with global markets and the Russian fish export competitiveness increase.
