Norwegian seafood exports totaled NOK 6 billion in September. This is an increase of 15 per cent, or NOK 792 million, compared to the same month last year.
So far this year, Norwegian seafood exports have totalled NOK 48.5 billion, an increase of NOK 6.7 billion, or 16 per cent, compared to the same period last year.
"Total exports of Norwegian seafood continue to increase through the third quarter of the year. This growth is ongoing in spite of the ban on imports to Russia, but it is still too early to make any conclusions as to the effect of the fact that we have lost our biggest market,” says Christian Chramer, Communications Director at the Norwegian Seafood Council.
"All the same, we see that the growth in global demand and the ability of Norwegian companies and their customers to adapt have contributed to limiting the damage,” adds Chramer.
