Russia is unlikely to be receiving any salmon from the Faroe Islands in the short term, as none of the country's three major salmon farmers are sending shipments to Russia. The country's largest producer, Bakkafrost, announced earlier that it would stop shipments to Russia, while Mowi and Hiddenfjord have no planned shipments.

“Like so many others, we are in shock and disbelief about what has happened, and our thoughts are with all the people suffering,” Hiddenfjord Sales Manager Oli Hansen told IntraFish.
