Several salmon farms agreed to pay a combined $33 million class action settlement to resolve claims they worked together to raise the price of salmon products.
According to a class action lawsuit against Mowi Ducktrap, Grieg Seafood, Sjór, SalMar, Lerøy Seafood and Cermaq, the companies conspired together to raise and fix the price of farm-raised salmon. Specifically, the salmon producers allegedly engineered a new price index they then manipulated to create artificially high spot prices for Atlantic salmon.
The defendants haven’t admitted any wrongdoing but agreed to a $33 million class action settlement to resolve these allegations.
