Customs Today on 26th June reported that the Norwegian minister of fisheries has said that the government will increase efforts to combat smugglers and consider more effective measures.  He said that fish smuggled out of Norway represent great values and feared that the findings made up to now are just the tip of the iceberg.  In 2017 more than 11 tonnes of fish were sized, while in 2018 so far over 4 tonnes have been discovered – mostly of fish fillets, which means that much of the fish is wasted, and the majority of the seizures are of cod.
