Norwegian seafood exports amounted to NOK 8.8 billion in April. This is an increase of NOK 892 million or 11 per cent compared with April last year. Year to date, seafood exports total NOK 34.5 billion. This is an increase of NOK 2.8 billion or 9 per cent compared with the same period last year.

«We are seeing strong growth in global demand for Norwegian salmon. This is especially true for the EU, Asia and the United States. In addition, this year’s skrei season has now ended, and high demand is driving high volumes and high prices. We have also been helped by the currency situation in April, where Norwegian kroner have been weak, especially against the dollar. Overall, this has been a fantastic month for Norwegian seafood exports”, says seafood analyst Ingrid K. Pettersen with the Norwegian Seafood Council.
