Regional authorities said the ban, as well as restrictions imposed today on fish trading, will be lifted after environmental experts are satisfied fish from the Amur pose no threat to human health.

Russian officials yesterday said they no longer expect concentrations of toxic chemicals to exceed the allowed norm when the spill reaches Khabarovsk later this month.
