Russian seafood ban off

NORWAY - The threatened ban of imports of Norwegian seafood by key customer Russia has been called off. </b> <br><br> Russia had threatened to implement new regulations for export certificates by an unreachable deadline of Oct. 1 but an agreement has now been reached. <br><br> &quot;This is very good news. The Russian market for Norwegian herring, mackerel and other fish will not be closed after a meeting between the Norwegian Food Safety Authority and Russian veterinary authorities had a positive outcome. Meanwhile we must have new, non-falsifiable export certificates in place by Oct 15,&quot; Fisheries Minister Helga Pedersen told Norwegian news agency NTB. <br><br> Pedersen said that the agreement did not entail new limitations or approval arrangements for the export of frozen fish. <br><br> <i>Source: Aftenposten</i>
