Russia: Several Fish Fry Species Excluded from Russia's Countersanctions Embargo of Certain Food and Agricultural Imports

On October 22, 2016, the Russian Government issued Decree No. 1086, amending the list of agricultural products that are subject to Russia’s countersanctions embargo of certain food and agricultural imports to exclude fry of flounder-turbot and fry of sea perch (HS heading 0301), and spat of white shrimp (HS heading 0306). The decision calls for attracting investment into the Russian aquaculture sector as well as increasing competitiveness of domestically produced fish in the local market.
