Other Media | Fish Farmer: Norway’s seafood exports up in value, down in volume

Friday, March 03, 2023

The impressive start to the New Year for Norway’s seafood exports continued during February, the latest figures show, with values rising despite a fall in volume.

In value terms, seafood exports rose by 14% to NOK 12.8bn (just over £1bn) with salmon again the main driver. But overall volumes were down by 17% to 207,000 tonnes, and the rise in value has been attributed to foreign exchange factors.

IN BRIEF: A study warns that the productivity and size of tuna species will decrease due to climate change

Thursday, March 02, 2023

The AZTI technology center has led an international study that has concluded that, in all scenarios, by 2050, the tuna stocks analyzed will notice an average decrease in productivity of 36% and a decrease in size of 15%, due to the effect of climate change, so the demand, price and profits of this fishery will also be affected.

This study tries to determine how the combined effect of climate change and fishing pressure may impact the productivity and size of the main commercial species of tuna and swordfish in the future.

A team of professionals in the field of research and modeling from Europe and Canada has participated in the study that has been published in the prestigious journal Global Planetary Change.
