Flaws Found During Russian Inspection of Norwegian Seafood Producers

Russian inspectors have finished their inspection of ten Norwegian seafood producers and report that they have found rust and mold in some production facilities.

Russia says "Nyet" to Norwegian Salmon

There are growing concerns about the levels of cadmium and lead found in Norwegian farmed salmon exported to Russia. Russia has banned Norwegian farmed salmon since 5 December 2005. On the eve of a meeting between the two governments that may result in a lifting of the ban, more of the story is coming out. Cadmium was found in farmed salmon feed as far back as April 2005 and the area of dispute centers on the failure of the VKM to issue any official warning about potential contamination of farmed salmon.
