Young’s Seafood, the United Kingdom’s largest seafood processor, remains silent on whether or not it will continue to purchase Russian fish following that country's unprovoked attack on neighboring Ukraine, and said it is unclear how recently announced tariffs on Russian whitefish will impact its business.

Earlier this week, the UK government announced a new raft of sanctions against Russia in response to its unprovoked and illegal war in Ukraine, including a list of goods that would now face an additional 35 percent tariff, including whitefish.
