Distribution of seafood exports from Norway 2018, by type of fish

Norway belongs to one of the largest fish- and seafood exporting countries in the world. The long coastline provides the best conditions for the domestic fish industry, which became an industry of high importance in the country. In the past few years, the export value of fish and seafood from Norway increased annually, reaching nearly 95 million Norwegian kroner in 2017. By roughly 68 percent in 2018, Salmon made the largest share of total seafood exports, followed by codfish and mackerel.

Salmon exports

   Atlantic salmon is the most farmed fish in Norway; the country is the largest producer of salmon worldwide. Therefore, the export value of salmon from Norway grew strongly, amounting to more than 64 billion Norwegian kroner in 2017.

Imports of fish and seafood 

  Norway’s fish industry can export most of its fish and seafood products and still cover the country’s own consumption by domestic supply. However, the imports into Norway has been growing in recent years, and the reason might be that there is a strong need to import especially fishmeal, fish oil and fish feed for the aquaculture industry. In 2016, fishmeal with a value of around two billion Norwegian kroner was imported.
