Salmon eviscerated head on, portioned or filleted
For salmon that is eviscerated head on, the CFIA has confirmed that there is no need for a zoosanitary export certificate, as long as the shipments are coming into Canada for the end uses of food service, retail use or further processing for human consumption. The only requirement for eviscerated head on salmon for these end uses is that the Canadian importer needs to obtain an Aquatic Animal Health Import Permit from the CFIA.
If eviscerated head on salmon are coming in for another end use, such as bait or feeding aquatic animals to aquatic animals, the shipments require a zoosanitary export certification from the Irish competent authority.
For salmon portions and fillets, the only requirement for these products (which have the following end uses of food service, retail use or further processing for human consumption) is that the Canadian importer must obtain an Aquatic Animal Health Import Permit from the CFIA.
