Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the resulting sanctions placed on the country from a wide number of nations is putting many seafood suppliers in complicated situations.

For example, Norway, which borders Russia in the north, is faced with a vexing situation: Russian vessels rely on Norwegian ports for offloading a significant portion of fish, while Norwegian processors rely on the raw material for their operations.

While port closures to Russian-flagged vessels have been implemented in the United Kingdom and the European Union, the financial stakes are higher in Norway.
