Faroese salmon farmer Bakkafrost has restarted exporting salmon to Russia after getting the greenlight from the country.

Bakkafrost operates in the main salmon markets of Europe, the United States, the Far East and Russia.

“We want to be active in that market [Russia],” said Regin Jacobsen, CEO of Bakkafrost, during the company's quarterly presentation on Tuesday.

“It is important to have access to all markets when there are major changes in a short time.”
