Case Summary:

This settlement resolves a class action brought against Mowi USA, LLC, Mowi Ducktrap, LLC, Mowi USA Holding, LLC, and Mowi ASA, concerning Ducktrap River of Maine smoked Atlantic salmon products, including those marketed under Ducktrap River of Maine, Kendall Brook, Spruce Point, Maine Harvest, and Nova Lox brand names. The complaint alleged that the smoked salmon was deceptively marketed as being sustainably sourced, all natural, and from Maine. In reality, it said, the farming methods were not environmentally sustainable, the salmon were treated with artificial chemicals, and the fish were sourced from farms outside the US rather than in Maine.
