”At the same time salmon export prices are well above last year’s, the volume of Norwegian salmon exports has reduced in key European markets.

In Spain, we see a volume decline of 28 per cent in October compared with October last year.

In France we see a reduction of 12 per cent. However, we are seeing a shift in exports to high-end segments in Asia, America and Africa.

The markets that pay the most for the Norwegian salmon are North America and Asia.

Here the average prices in October were NOK 73.50 and NOK 70.80 per kg respectively for fresh whole salmon”, says communications director Geir Håvard Hanssen Norwegian Seafood Council.
