Norwegian seafood exports increased by 25 per cent in volume in November but their value remained as last year's level.

According to statistics from the Norwegian Seafood Council, in the eleventh month this year, 286,000 tonnes of seafood were exported for a total value of NOK 9 billion (USD 1,084 million).

Considering the first 11 months of 2017, sales abroad experienced a 6 per cent and a 4 per cent growth in volume and value, respectively.

"Despite the fact that the price of salmon continues to decline, we expect that the total export value for Norwegian seafood in 2017 will exceed last year's figure by a comfortable margin. The explanation for this is the increased volume of salmon combined with a relatively high price level”, stressed Asbjørn Warvik Rørtveit, Director of Market Insight with the Seafood Council.

In November, Norway exported 103,000 tonnes of salmon valued at NOK 5,700 million (USD 686.7 million), figures which represent an increase of 11 per cent in volume but a decline of 5 per cent in value compared with the same month last year. Poland and France were the largest markets.
