Salmon suppliers say China has halted imports after virus found at Beijing market

Mon 15th June, 2020 10:30am
OSLO, June 15 (Reuters) - China has halted imports of salmon
after the discovery of the novel coronavirus at a Beijing
wholesale market, fish farmers Norway Royal Salmon  NRSM.OL  and
Bakkafrost  BAKKA.OL  told Reuters on Monday.
    "We can't send any salmon to China now, the market is
closed," Regin Jacobsen,, CEO of Oslo-listed Bakkafrost, said.
    Shares in major producers including Norway's Mowi  MOWI.OL ,
Norway Royal Salmon and Salmar  SALM.OL , as well as Bakkafrost
of the Faroe Islands, were down by 5-7% in early trade.
    Following reports in state-run newspapers that the virus was
discovered on chopping boards used for imported salmon at
Beijing's Xinfadi market, major supermarkets in Beijing removed
salmon from their shelves on Saturday.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N2DQ02I
