Trident Seafoods CEO Joe Bundrant said Saturday that the US ban on Russian seafood imports could include products reprocessed in China, in what would be a severe blow for Russian pollock and cod processors.

"I do think it could happen," Bundrant told IntraFish. "How it is going to be enforced in this unregulated business is the question."

President Joe Biden's announcement Friday that imports of Russian seafood will be banned sent shockwaves through the industry, even though it was expected it would be one of the casualties of Putin's unprovoked invasions of Ukraine.
