– The world loves seafood from Norway because it is healthy, sustainable, and of the highest quality. Seafood is a part of the solution to the global challenges we face, including health, climate and the need for more food, says Renate Larsen, CEO of the Norwegian Seafood Council.
Norway is the world’s second largest exporter of seafood, providing 37 million daily meals of seafood to 146 countries across the globe. Responsible management of our precious resources is at the very core of the Norwegian seafood industry.

By choosing seafood from Norway consumers can be assured they are eating some of the most sustainable and highest quality seafood there is, says Larsen.
