Best Norwegian salmon export figures ever

In the first half-year of 2010, exports of Norwegian Salmon increased by NOK 3.3 billion to NOK 13.9 billion compared to the same period last year. This is an impressive 31% increase and sets a new record for the value of Norwegian Salmon exports in a first half-year period.

“The growth in exports of Norwegian Salmon is attributable to an increase in both volume and price as the result of strong global demand for salmon and reduced competition,” explains Paul Aandahl, market analyst from the Norwegian Seafood Export Council.

A Norwegian Salmon export record was also set for the month of June, when the value of exports increased by NOK 793 million or 39% to NOK 2.8 billion.

“Farming of Norwegian Salmon and measures to combat salmon lice have received much media attention in Norway in 2010,” comments Christian Chramer, director of information with the Norwegian Seafood Export Council. “In the international media, with the exception of a French TV documentary, these issues have attracted very little attention outside Norway. We take the criticisms that have been made extremely seriously, but to date there has been no negative impact on buying patterns or preference for Norwegian Salmon.”
