The Norwegian salmon industry risks a ban in Russia after authorities there said the fish contains high levels of parasites.
The Barents Observer reported Monday that Russian trade officials threaten the boycott of Norwegian salmon if tighter restrictions are not implemented by Norway’s fish industry.
Russian inspectors this week surveyed several Norwegian fish farms and claimed they found bacteria in some parts of the Norwegian-farmed salmon.
