This is long,long,long overdue just from the basic fairness perspective but now given Mr.Putin's actions in the Ukraine it seems a no-brainer. There will be however considerable resistance(there already is as witnessed by the stance taken this past week by Seafood News) in the U.S. Seafood industry to certain aspects of this,particularly on the crab side of the business.There has been vast amounts of money made(and laundered) over the last 30 years,particularly in the Pacific NW in the shipping,importing,storing,reprocessing,trading and retail selling of Russian crab in the big dirty secret that might finally get some scrutiny!!!
