What's This Settlement About?

A $85 Million Class Action Settlement has been reached involving inflated prices for salmon, and price fixing via unfair business practices and collution to monopolize salmon markets and raise prices. The class action lawsuit alleges that these salmon companies conspired to fix, raise, and maintain the prices that they paid for the Defendants' farm-raised Atlantic salmon and that, as a result, purchasers paid more than they otherwise would have. The following Salmon food companies are involved as defendants in the class action lawsuit that was settled:

• Mowi ASA (formerly known as Marine Harvest ASA),
• Mowi USA, LLC (formerly known as Marine Harvest USA, LLC),
• Mowi Canada West, Inc. (formerly known as Marine Harvest Canada, Inc.),
• Mowi Ducktrap, LLC (an assumed name of Ducktrap River of Maine, LLC),
• Grieg Seafood, ASA, Grieg Seafood BC Ltd., Grieg Seafood North America Inc. (formerly known as Ocean Quality North America Inc.),
• Grieg Seafood USA, Inc. (formerly known as Ocean Quality USA Inc.),
• Grieg Seafood Premium Brands, Inc. (formerly known as Ocean Quality Premium Brands, Inc.),
• Sjór AS (formerly known as Ocean Quality AS), SalMar ASA,
• Lerøy Seafood AS,
• Lerøy Seafood USA, Inc., Cermaq Group, AS, Cermaq US LLC,
• Cermaq Canada Ltd., and Cermaq Norway AS
