Main fish and fish products imported into Norway 2016, by import value

The Norwegian fish industry exports most of its products; and this industry can easily meet the domestic needs of Norwegians for fish as well. However, the imports into Norway increased in the past years, probably due to the strong need to import especially fishmeal, fish oil and fish feed for the aquaculture industry. As of 2016, fishmeal with a value of approximately two billion Norwegian kroner was imported.    

 Fish exports 

Norway is one of the largest fish and seafood exporting countries in the world. In the past few years, the export value of fish and seafood from Norway increased strongly, reaching nearly 95 million Norwegian kroner in 2017. In 2018, salmon made up the largest share (roughly 68 percent) of total seafood exports, followed by codfish and mackerel. 

 Norwegian fishery industry 

  Fishery has always been an industry of high importance for Norway. The country benefits from its long coastline, which provides best conditions for the domestic fish industry. Especially salmon farming is very common. It is the number one farmed animal in Norway, reaching a sales volume of roughly 1.2 million metric tons in 2017.
