Record seafood export in October

The value of Norwegian seafood exports in October totalled NOK 7.3 billion, the highest ever for a single month, according to the latest figures from the Norwegian Seafood Council.

 

In October, Norwegian seafood exports were up in value by 32 per cent or NOK 1.8 billion compared to the same month last year.

“The strong seafood exports in October are primarily attributable to three circumstances,” says Egil Ove Sundheim, director of market information with the Norwegian Seafood Council. “Demand for Norwegian Salmon often outpaces production, which results in higher prices. Secondly, the aquaculture industry sold a larger volume of Norwegian Salmon in October than in the same month last year. And thirdly, exports of Mackerel from Norway to Asia increased in October.”

This year to date, the value of Norwegian seafood exports totals NOK 48.4 billion. This is an increase of NOK 6.3 billion or 15 per cent, according to figures from the Norwegian Seafood Council.

The value of exports of Norwegian Salmon in October totalled no less than NOK 4.2 billion. This is the best valuation ever of Norwegian Salmon exports in a single month and represents an increase of NOK 1.6 billion or 60 per cent compared to October last year.

France, Poland and Russia were the biggest importers of Norwegian Salmon.

Exports of Norwegian Fjord Trout in October increased in value by 51 per cent or NOK 88 million to a total of NOK 262 million. For the year to date, the value of exports of Norwegian Fjord Trout totals NOK 1.9 billion. This is an increase of NOK 469 million compared to the same period in 2012. The biggest importers of Norwegian Fjord Trout are Russia and Belarus.
