Norway´s salmon exports were worth NOK 4.9 billion in March. An increase of 18 per cent or NOK 768 million compared to March 2015. March in volume terms amounted to 80,663 tonnes. This is a reduction of 13 per cent compared with the same month last year.
”Reduced output from Norwegian producers, combined with a strong demand for Norwegian salmon and favorable currency situation has contributed to a record first quarter for Norwegian salmon”, says Paul T. Aandahl, analyst for salmon and trout at the Norwegian Seafood Council.
