Herring, cod, and salmon all suffered drops in export volumes in the first six months of the year.
The volume of Norwegian seafood exports fell in the first half of the year as challenging fishing conditions, reduced quotas and lower salmon production all had an impact on trade, according to the latest figures from the Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC).
The country’s main export species — herring, cod, and salmon — all saw drops in export volume in the first six months of the year.
In terms of value, though, Norway exported NOK 82.3 billion (€7.1 billion/$7.7 billion) worth of seafood, an increase of 18 percent, compared to the first half of last year.
