Japan’s seafood exports to Russia face difficulties
Japan is one of the countries that imposes sanctions on Russia, so the seafood export of this country into Russia is even more difficult.
Japan’s latest package of sanctions against Russia includes a ban on imports of 38 types of goods from Russia, which took effect on April 19, but does not include a ban on seafood. However, this also does not make the import and export of Japanese seafood to Russia more favorable. Many Japanese aquarists have difficulty selling their products.

However, conflict in Ukraine The export of farm goods to Russia has been brought to a standstill. They no longer receive new orders from Russian importers.
“We can’t export to Russia anymore. I hope we can resume exports to Russia soon because this is our main market,” said Mr. Suzuki Takashi – Suzuki farm owner.
