Norwegian seafood exports passed the 100 billion kroner mark three months before the end of the year.
According to today’s figures from the Norwegian Seafood Council, exports will reach a new record of NOK 109 billion (£9 billion) in the first nine months of 2022, with farmed salmon accounting for almost 75% of that number. I’m here.
This represents a 29% growth compared to the same period last year, almost certainly driven by higher prices for salmon, cod and haddock.
The council’s new CEO, Christian Chramer, described the growth as “impressive”, adding:
“Norwegian seafood has maintained a strong position globally, both during the Covid-19 crisis and the current difficult times.
“Rising production costs in key markets, logistical difficulties and rising food inflation are driving seafood prices higher, but at the same time we are facing uncertain times with weakening purchasing power and rapidly changing markets.”
