Import Ban on Russian Seafood Into U.S. Receives Extension To May

In the final days of 2023, President Joseph R. Biden signed an Executive Order on “taking additional steps with respect to the Russian Federation’s harmful actions.” The U.S. had already banned imports of Russian seafood, but the latest Executive Order closed a loophole that allowed Russian-caught seafood, processed in China, to enter the country. The government gave U.S. importers a deadline of February 21 to bring in any Russian-origin seafood that was already under contract or written agreement prior to December 22...

The Winding Glass: Alaskan Fisheries Have Hit the Wall; Can They Fly Again? 

These are dark times in Alaska and not just because of the short days in January. 2023 saw an unprecedented collapse for Alaska salmon and pollock after a roaring demand in 2022. These two fisheries are the lynchpin of seafood value in Alaska and their collapse has hurt production of other species as well. 

The fallout has included retrenchment by processors like Trident and Peter Pan. Trident is putting one-third of their Alaskan plants up for sale, cutting back operations, and postponing for at least...

U.S. Department of Treasury Updates HTS Codes Under Expanded Russian Sanctions

In December a new Executive Order was issued expanding the sanctions of certain seafood from Russia. The Executive Order not only blocks the importation of seafood from Russia, but also Russian-harvested seafood that has been “transformed into another product outside of the Russian Federation.”

A few weeks after the Biden Administration announced the Executive Order, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control published regulations defining what is meant by the terms “salmon,” “cod,” “pollock,” and “crab.” This update includes HTS codes that previously...

Russia to Target the Asian Market for Pollock Surimi

According to the Hokkaido Trawl Fisheries Cooperative Federation, Russia, the world's largest producer of Alaska pollock, will increasingly produce surimi, and the Asian market is expected to be the target market.

Russian Analysts Say The U.S. Decision To Expand Seafood Ban Will 'Not Have Major Negative Impact'

The latest decision from the U.S. to ban imports of salmon, cod, crab and pollock from Russia as a result of a new stage of tightening sanctions pressure on Russia will not a have a major negative impact on Russia and its fishermen.

Winding Glass: Domestic Producers from Pollock to Shrimp Upend Seafood Supply at Their Peril

We all know that seafood is the most internationally traded protein.  And we know that the industry is highly competitive and subject to market forces of supply and demand.  So what happens if producers, frustrated by a period of low prices, try to politically compensate.

A disaster, that’s what.  Many in the industry know I have left wing sympathies.  I support fair wages, reasonable distribution of wealth, a fair return on investment for both harvesters and processors, and active government support to improve markets...
