The analysis adresses the question of whether Sweden's membership in the EU has had any influence on the import of smoked salmon from Norway. After Sweden became a member of EU in 1995, the trade conditions changed from free trade to a regime where import of smoked salmon from Norway is imputed a 13 % ad valorem duty. Statistical models are applied in testing whether there exists an "EU-effect". The analysis indicates that we cannot reject the possibility of an "EU-effect". The inflicted long-run loss on the Norwegian industry amounts to about 16 million Norwegian kroner per year, which corresponds to about 8 % of the average yearly export value before 1995.
