For the second year in a row Norway seafood exports have set new records. Norway exported seafood worth NOK 68.8 billion in 2014, 12 percent (or NOK 7.3 billion) more than in 2013. ”Norwegian seafood has never enjoyed a stronger position in the world market. Despite the collapse of the Russian export market due to sanctions this year, the Norwegian seafood industry has shown it can adapt to meet the needs of new markets. The result has been record export figures for salmon, cod and mackerel”, comments Terje E. Martinussen, Chief Executive of the Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC). The Russian import ban came into force on August 7th, which effectively capped Russian exports in 2014 to NOK 3.4 billion, a 48% decrease compared to 2013.

In 2014, 62% of total Norwegian seafood exports were to EU countries.
