Russia to Allow Some Exports of Salmon from Norway

06 August 2013

NORWAY and RUSSIA - The Russian veterinary service has given permission to a handful of Norwegian companies to export frozen salmon to Russia.

Grieg Seafood Finnmark AS, Martin E. Birknes, Breivoll Marine Products Inc. and Nova Sea AS have all been cleared to export frozen salmon to Russia whilst Bremnes Seas Whore AS and AS Nils Williksen have been banned.

"It is positive that the four are exporting. Veterinary inspections were at the beginning of July and it is the basis for the opening of the four and the exclusion of the two," says Bjorn Knudtsen Rothe, head of the Norwegian delegation in the Norwegian-Russian working group.

Exclusion of Bremnes Seas Whore AS and AS Nils Williksen will apply from 8 August.
