Norway sees strong exports of salmon and herring in 2005 Published: 11 January, 2006
NORWAY exported fish for 31,7 billion NOK in 2005. That is 3,6 billion NOK more than the previous year and a new record, according to the Norwegian website Fiskeribladet.no.
Reportedly, never before has the export of Norwegian seafood grown so much over a single year as in 2005. December was the strongest month, when Norway exported seafood for a value of 3,4 billion NOK. In addition, the fishing industry has never before had a single month when they have earned so much money, according to the yearly overview presented by the Norwegian Seafood Export Council. Norway is still ahead of Chile in the production of Atlantic salmon with 46 compared to 31 percent of the market and over the last year the Norwegian salmon industry has been working hard to become the best on fresh salmon. And the hard work seems to have paid off as the growth in last year’s exports mainly were seen in fresh salmon.
