– After a very strong year in 2016, we see that the export growth for salmon flattens out in 2017. The most important reason is a stable EU market. Increased consumer prices have led to reduced purchases of salmon in several of the major consumer markets in the EU, says Paul T. Aandahl, Seafood Analyst with the Norwegian Seafood Council.
