Canadian firm fined over Fiji fish imports

A Canadian canning company has been fined more than F$29,000 for importing undeclared Fiji fish into its home country, it has been revealed.

Fiji’s Consul Designate to Canada Ashwant Dwivedi confirmed he would be holding talks with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) this week regarding this import of undeclared fish into Canada.

CFIA imposed the C$20,000 (F$29,296) on Konihoor Grocery Ltd based in Surrey, British Columbia.

Konihoor Grocery Ltd is the same company that Fiji is strongly opposed to for its proposed registration and usage of the Fiji trademark ‘Fiji Ocean’ for its canned fish to be supplied in the Canadian market.

“I can confirm that based on my talks with the CFIA, the company has been cited for violation of the act in Canada to have imported undeclared Fiji fish into the Canadian market,” Dwivedi said.

In a statement, the CFIA said Kohinoor Grocery Ltd had been found guilty of such an offence, under Section 6(2)(e) of the Fish Inspection Regulations of Canada.

This section of the Fish Inspection Regulations states that “no person shall import into Canada or attempt to import into Canada any fish unless, written notification of each shipment of fish to be imported or that is imported is provided to an inspector either prior to the importation or within 48 hours following the importation”.

Dwivedi said CFIA found out about this activity while responding to a consumer complaint and found, after an inspection, canned mackerel imported from Fiji at the location of the business.

“The CFIA learned that the company had imported the mackerel into Canada and failed to notify the CFIA of its importation,” the statement said.
