KURSA as a joint-stock company was founded in 1992, however, it was created in 1946 - at the same time as Liepaja Artel of Marine Fisheries. Two years later, in 1948, a fishing collective farm "Bolshevik" was established in its place, which was one of the largest collective fisheries in Latvia. It had up to 50 fishing vessels and employed about 2000 people.
In 2004, the Latvian group of fish products producers LZPRG was founded, a community consisting of 12 fishing companies in Latvia, including LSEZ AS KURSA. The aim of the group is to represent the interests of its members in state institutions, as well as to assist in various issues related to the production, fishing and sale of products.
Today, as part of the LZPRG group, AS KURSA works with equipment that is purchased in various European Union countries - Germany, Sweden, etc. The filleting process is done using the equipment of the companies BAADER and SEAC, which are long-standing partners. LZPRG is engaged in sorting fish, freezing, producing cod fillets and similar fish, producing Baltic herring and sprat fillets. In 2014, the production of ice was started both for fishing vessels and for production needs.
LZPRG Group actively uses the development opportunities offered by the funds of the European Union. The newest equipment for expansion of activities, as well as other fixed assets have been purchased. In early 2015, one of the major projects was completed - the reconstruction of the berth No. 93 of the Liepaja port, which makes it possible to use the modern infrastructure necessary for fishing vessels.
