Kloosterboer International Forwarding LLC (KIF) and Alaska Reefer Management LLC (ARM), subsidiaries of pollock heavyweight American Seafoods, have received a preliminary injunction to stop a US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) enforcement action that threatened the companies' ability to supply Alaska seafood to US customers via the Bayside route.

The injunction was given in an order issued Sunday by US District Court Judge for the District of Alaska, Sharon Gleason.

The preliminary injunction covers the 26 million pounds of seafood previously shipped from Alaska and stalled just over the border in the Bayside facility in New Brunswick, Canada, as well as future shipments from Alaska through this route until the broader dispute with CBP is resolved in court.
