BUENOS AIRES, April 6 (Itar-Tass) — Chilean salmon may soon return to the Russian market, head of the Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision (Rosselkhoznadzor) Sergei Dankvert told Itar-Tass by telephone from Santiago.
He stressed that “the Chilean salmon has always occupied an important place on the Russian market, but due to the disease (of the fish stock) its supplies were almost stopped.”
The Rosselkhoznadzor head said that the supply of salmon from Chile could challenge the import of this fish from Norway. “We have many claims to the Norwegian products,” he said. “We have proposed to the Norwegian service to voluntarily impose restrictions on a number of plants, but it does not want to, and apparently, we will have to do it ourselves.”
In this case, Chile will get a good opportunity to supply salmon to Russia, Sergei Dankvert said.
