The NSC’s head office is located in Tromsø and it employs representatives in Sweden, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Brazil, Japan, China, Singapore, Russia and the USA.

The NSC is a key player in the safeguarding of the Norwegian fisheries industry’s positive image. The NSC engages in active information work and cooperates closely with media, NGOs, various interest groups, the fishery industry and Norwegian authorities. To ensure reliable and updated information regarding Norwegian seafood, NSC works in close cooperation with expert bodies and Norwegian authorities.
The NSC is the industry’s key source of information for tariff rates, product classifications, import quotas and other conditions relating to market access. The NSC acts in an advisory capacity to the Ministry of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs and other authorities, and is responsible for the approval of exporters.
The NSC provides statistics and analyses of Norwegian and international trade relating to seafood. Presentation of market information is important, and the NSC runs trade seminars as well as presenting information online and through press releases.
