Chilean salmon exports to Russia jumped higher in the third quarter, following a dramatic drop in the immediate aftermath of Russia's widely condemned invasion of Ukraine in February.

Exports of salmon to Russia rose 44.4 percent in the third quarter to 11,171 metric tons.

Chilean shipments of salmon and trout to Russia fell 46 percent in the first quarter of 2022 amid fallout from the Ukraine invasion. At the time, several Chilean salmon farming companies said they would cease shipping to the Russian market.
