Tuesday, November 10, 2020

With NEAFC due to meet this week, tensions are already rising around Norwegian tactics concerning stocks in Areas I and II, notably redfish and Greenland halibut.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: As Biden emerges as likely election winner, seafood industry prepares for potential changes
