Other Media | SeafoodSource: Norwegian salmon prices fall as shuttered restaurant trade takes its toll

Wednesday, February 10, 2021

Norway’s seafood exports fell by a double-digit percentage in January 2021 compared to 2020, largely the result of ongoing downturns related to COVID-19.

Norway exported NOK 8.1 billion (USD 941.5 million, EUR 786.1 million) worth of seafood products last month, some 16 percent or NOK 1.6 billion (USD 185.8 million, EUR 155.3 million) less than it sold to overseas markets in January 2020, with reduced demand for salmon accounting for much of the downturn. Reduced exports of trout and fresh cod compared to the record month of January 2020 also contributed to the lower earnings.

Although the plaintiffs’ legal team emphasised that the trial does not deal with the traffic light system as such, that is exactly what it does.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: Farmers challenge Norway’s ‘traffic light’ scheme

Wednesday, February 10, 2021

A major civil court case has opened to test the legality of Norway’s controversial fish farming traffic light scheme.

Expected to last up to two weeks, the hearing was triggered by 25 salmon and trout companies, mostly based in the south west of the country, who claim not only that they are being robbed of their livelihood, but that the country is losing out on its second most valuable export.

The scheme, they also argue, will also impact on many coastal communities who depend on aquaculture for jobs and social amenities.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Russian antimonopoly watchdog suspects pollock catchers of violating competition law

Tuesday, February 09, 2021

Russia’s antitrust regulator, the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS), has opened a case against the Pollock Catchers Association (PCA) and several of its members over allegedly anticompetitive conduct.

The plaintiff in the case is the Russian Fishery Company (RFC), which has been in conflict with PCA since late last year, when it was ousted from the association.

According to FAS case documents, the PCA possibly violated a clause in section 11 of Russia’s federal law regulating competition, Vedomosti reported. The clause prohibits businesses or business associations from blocking companies' market access.
