The European Commission’s Argumentation for Imposing Anti Dumping Measures on Norwegian Salmon

Type/nr R21/06
Skrevet av Torbjørn Lorentzen
This report is an evaluation of the EU Council's decision in January 2006 to implement a five-year MIP on imported Atlantic salmon from Norway. The European Commission report on which this decision is based has a lot of loose ends with regard to the documentation of dumping, understanding the dynamics of the aquaculture industry and the link between productivity gains, competition and market prices, and finally the lack of understanding of the welfare costs inflicted on themselves by the implementation of the anti-dumping measures on imported Norwegian salmon.
