Norway and EU is hopping a positiv answer from the WTO.

 There has been a shocked reaction to claims from the
Norwegian state broadcaster, Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK), that the
World Trade Organisation (WTO) will challenge the minimum import price set by
the EU for farmed salmon from Norway.
NRK said that it had received a copy of the WTO report,
which is due out next month, which examined claims that the Norwegian farmed
salmon industry had been dumping cheap salmon onto EU markets. Norway has been
applying increasing pressure on the EU and on the WTO to overturn the MIP. The
European Commission set the MIP for salmon at 2.80Euros/kg in 2006.
