US seafood industry trade groups are backing US President Joe Biden's move to ban Russian seafood imports as part of a new round of sanctions issued Friday. But they remain concerned it will not be enough to stop all seafood originating from Russia.

"In response to the Ukraine crisis, the National Fisheries Institute appreciates the need for reciprocal treatment of seafood," National Fisheries Institute (NFI) spokesperson Gavin Gibbons told IntraFish. "We will work with the administration on implementation of this embargo."
