Almost two months after Norway placed a partial port ban on Russian fishing vessels very little has changed in terms of landings, according to figures from the Norwegian Fishermen’s Sales Organization (Norges Rafisklag).

On Oct. 14, Norway tightened restrictions, blocking Russian fishing vessels over 500 gross tons from all but three of Norway's ports -- Tromso, Kirkenes and Batsfjord.

"We do not want Norwegian ports and Norway to become a transit country for transporting goods illegally to Russia," said Norway's Foreign Minister Anniken Huitfeldt at the time the ban was announced.
