In December 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Mowi ASA, Mowi USA, and Mowi Ducktrap for allegedly falsely marketing Ducktrap River of Maine Smoked Salmon as “sustainably sourced” when, according to plaintiffs, the salmon comes from industrial farms that use practices that are not sustainable. (Starr et al v. Mowi ASA, Mowi USA, LLC and Mowi Ducktrap, LLC
, Case No. 20-cv-488, D. Me.)
