Seafood exports for January-October surpassed those of the entire and unprecedentedly successful 2009 at NOK 43.1 billion (EUR 5.3 billion) versus the NOK 44.6 billion (EUR 5.5 billion) of last year. 

Last month alone, seafood exports reached NOK 5.9 billion (EUR 721.9 million) -- NOK 1 billion (EUR 122.3 million) or 21 per cent more compared to October 2009, according to the Norwegian Seafood Export Council (NSEC).

”Strong growth in mackerel exports to Japan have helped boost seafood exports in October. In addition, continuing record sales of salmon provide a solid foundation for seafood exports from Norway as we go forward,” said Egil Ove Sundheim, director of market information with NSEC.

For the first time ever, exports of salmon have topped NOK 3 billion (EUR 367 million) in a single month. This is an increase of NOK 843 million (EUR 103.1 million) or 38 per cent compared to the same month last year. 

Showing unparalleled growth, salmon exports yielded NOK 24.9 billion (EUR 3 billion), or a NOK 5.9 billion (EUR 721.9 million) rise year-on-year, already exceeding the total export value of salmon for 2009. This escalation is attributed to unrelenting high prices and record export volumes.

Fjord trout exports last month jumped by NOK 173 million (EUR 21.2 million). Year-on-year through October, this represents a drop of NOK 341 million (EUR 41.7 million) to NOK 1.3 billion (EUR 159.1 million).

France and Poland are the main salmon importers, with exports to Russia in October up by 106 per cent to NOK 322 million (EUR 39.4 million), making Russia the third biggest salmon market.

Mackerel exports last month rocketed by NOK 247 million (EUR 30.2 million) or 40 per cent to NOK 865 million (EUR 105.8 million). For the year to date, total exports reached NOK 2.7 billion (EUR 330.3 million), a growth of NOK 1.1 billion (EUR 134.6 million).

Herring exports skid by NOK 163 million (EUR 19.9 million) to NOK 381 million (EUR 46.6 million). Thus far this year, the value of herring exports is NOK 2.6 billion (EUR 318.1 million), down by NOK 337 million (EUR 41.2 million) or 11 per cent year-on-year.

Russia is the biggest export market for herring despite a slump in the value of exports by 10 per cent to NOK 685 million (EUR 83.8 million). The second biggest market is Germany, with exports up by 18 per cent to NOK 312 million (EUR 38.2 million). 

Mackerel exports thus far in 2010 total NOK 918 million (EUR 112.3 million), up by NOK 537 million (EUR 65.7 million) on the same period last year. 

Exports of clipfish last month climbed by NOK 85 million (EUR 10.4 million) or 20 per cent to NOK 517 million (EUR 63.3 million). For the year to date, exports total NOK 2.8 billion (EUR 342.6 million), up by NOK 340 million (EUR 41.6 million) or 14 per cent. 

Exports of salted fish dropped by NOK 49 million (EUR 6 million) last month to nearly half of that in October 2009. However, in January-October exports rose by NOK 95 million (EUR 11.6 million) or 15 per cent to NOK 738 million (EUR 90.3 million).
