Press releases

Samkvæmt nýjum tölum frá framkvæmdastjórn ESB jókst útflutningur íslenskra sjávarafurða til ESB um 19% árið 2015. Raunar jókst útflutningur sjávarafurða frá Íslandi til ESB meira en frá nokkru öðru ríki.

Tölurnar má nálgast hér: http://www.eumofa.eu/documents/20178/22933/Monthly+Highlights+-+N.5-2016.pdf/83386ab5-8bbe-4f9c-8f25-b02b7d580be6 (bls 10).

 

Þar segir meðal annars: "The Russian embargo on imports from the EU, as well as from the USA, Canada, Norway, Iceland, and Australia, affected global trade. Exports of fishery and aquaculture products intended for the Russian market were redirected to other markets, including the EU. This could partially explain the 19% increase in imports from Iceland, for which Russia was a major market for small pelagic species."
