Fukuoka’s mentaiko producers face hardship as they continue to import Russian cod roe. Despite the severely strained relations with Russia and the significant impact of recent exchange rates, the industry remains reliant on Russian-sourced ingredients to keep their businesses running. The prices of cod roe from Russia rose by around 40% in the spring of 2022 and approximately 50 % from America. Source: TNC
