Norway: Regulator keeps eye on EU salmon price-fixing probe

 |  February 21, 2019

Norway’s competition authority declined to comment on whether it would launch an investigation into allegations of price fixing by the country’s salmon farming sector, but said it’s following the probe from the European Commission.

The EC probe on alleged price fixing is focusing on Norwegian salmon, despite raids taking place in the UK at the Scottish operations of Mowi (formerly Marine Harvest), Leroy Seafood Group, SalMar and Greig Seafood.

“We cannot comment on whether this [the EC probe] will lead to our own inspections or other activities towards this sector in Norway.
