ESA: Norway needs to improve official controls of trade of live farmed fish/shellfish




This is the main conclusion in a report published by ESA (the EFTA Surveillance Authority) after an audit in Norway in May.

Norway has put in place a system of official controls of farmed fish/shellfish focusing mainly on diseases which are of national concern. However, ESA found that Norway must improve the controls of diseases in farmed fish/shellfish that will be traded in the EEA.

Currently, Norway cannot fully ensure that farmed fish/shellfish sent from Norway to other EEA-states does not affect the health of farmed fish/shellfish in the receiving countries.

After the audit, Norway has taken and planned a number of corrective measures, to allow for continuation of the EEA trade and export of farmed fish/shellfish.
