Despite economic sanctions, Norwegian imports of salmon feed from Russia have almost doubled from last year.

Despite the sanctions prohibiting “directly or indirectly buying, importing, or transferring goods that generate significant income for Russia,” the value of feed imports amounted to NOK 309 million in June, the newspaper Aftenposten writes.

That is almost twice as much as at the same time last year, according to figures from Statistics Norway (SSB). In total, Norway bought goods from Russia for close to NOK 1 billion in June.

“The June figures show that imports from Russia have fallen. Fish feed and raw materials for fish feed make up a significant part of the import value in June,” section leader Therese Vestre in Statistics Norway told the newspaper.

The value of goods exported from Norway to Russia amounted to NOK 633 million in the second quarter of 2022. That is a decrease of 37% from the same period last year.
