Salmon export not affected by research scare

The export of Norwegian salmon dos not appear to be affected by last week's US report claiming that eating farmed salmon could be a danger to your health.

The report has been refuted by Norwegian and British scientists.

The Norwegian Export Council for Fish has so far not received any reports of cancellation of orders.

The Norwegian salmon industry has noted that the US report came right on the heels of an outbreak of mad cow disease in the US, and that it was expected that there would be an increased demand for fish on the market.

CEO Ole-Erik Leroy of Leroy Seafood Group in Bergen, one of Norway's largest exporters of farmed salmon, says that there is an ongoing fight for the consumer in the international food market, and that this fight is mainly between meat and fish.
