Seafood exports continue to grow despite the lossof the Russian market and illustrates Norway's competitive advantage withseafood from both fisheries and aquaculture. Larger volumes of mackerel,combined with better prices and larger volumes of cod were the key contributorsto October´s record figures,” says Christian Chramer, communications director forthe Norwegian Seafood Council.
