OSLO, December 21 (Itar-Tass) - Norway has been officially informed of Russia's ban on importing some fish from January 1, the Norwegian food security service, Mattilsynet reports.
“The Russian authority has informed us it is limiting imports of products of Norwegian facilities that supplied midwater and ground fish from the next year,” the report goes.
According to Mattilsynet’s spokesperson Bjrn Rthe Knudsen, these products are now subject to approval by Russian experts. He added Norway was now taking measures to enable the necessary checks.
“We have already proposed the Russian side hold prompt inspections at all facilities that need checks,” Knudsen said adding this would lead to hard consequences for fish farms to face restrictions.
On December 18, the Russian veterinary authority Rosselkhoznadzor announced a ban on Norwegian midwater fish supplies from January 1. The ban did not affect salmon fishes and products of farms earlier inspected by the Russian watchdog. Thus, the ban will primarily concern frozen dressed sea fish (herring, cod, haddock).
