Norway's salmon exports to China fell amid virus outbreak

Thu 18th June, 2020 6:04am
OSLO, June 18 (Reuters) - Norwegian salmon exports to China
fell by a third last week to 240 tonnes, Norway's state-owned
seafood marketing organisation said on Thursday.
    The 34% decline came as imports of salmon to China were
halted towards the end of the week when the novel coronavirus
was discovered at stalls processing the fish at a major Beijing
wholesale food market.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL8N2DS2JC
    "It's too early to tell which consequences the new outbreak
in Beijing will have for salmon exports in the time ahead," the
Norwegian Seafood Council said in a statement.
    Norway and China have both concluded that the salmon itself
was not the source of the virus, Norway's fisheries minister
said on Wednesday.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL8N2DU1U4
