For the month of March alone, seafood exports were worth NOK 7.4 billion. This is an increase of 14 percent or NOK 937 million compared with March 2015.

”Q1 went well for most sectors of the seafood industry, but salmon has been the strongest contributor to the growth in value in the first quarter, with an increase of NOK 2.3 billion in sales of salmon products compared with the first quarter of 2015.

It is also gratifying to see that the European market for fresh cod is growing and that this has helped us achieve good prices for skrei throughout the first quarter.

Prawn and shellfish also saw a doubling of exports compared with the first quarter of 2015. This positive development is due to higher prices achieved at market, coupled with increased demand, which has been helped by a favourable currency situation for the Norwegian krone”, says Geir Håvard Hanssen, Director of Communications at the Norwegian Seafood Council.
