Norway exported seafood worth NOK 13.3 billion in January. This is an increase of NOK 640 million, or 5 per cent, compared to the same month in 2023.
“2024 seafood exports have got off to a good start. This is primarily due to increased salmon prices. Together with a weakened krone, this has led to the total export value setting a record high for January”, says Christian Chramer, CEO of the Norwegian Seafood Council.
The value of seafood exports has continuously grown for the last 35 months. One of the reasons for this is the weak Norwegian krone.

NSC and EAT announce partnership ahead of UN summit on future food systems. The aim is to join forces in speaking up for seafood as part of the solution to tackle climate change.

“As in April, we also see a significant currency effect in May. The weak Norwegian krone alone contributed to an increase in export value of around NOK 1.5 billion last month. Without this currency development, there would have been a decline in export value. The market situation has now become more demanding”, says Christian Chramer, CEO of the Norwegian Seafood Council.
