Norway exported 291,000 tonnes of seafood worth NOK 10.9 billion (USD 1.19 billion) in October. Exports increased by 8 per cent in volume and 9 per cent in value, compared with the same period last year.

So far this year, Norway has exported 2.2 million tonnes of seafood worth NOK 87 billion (USD 9.5 billion). Export volume has fallen by 4 per cent, but export value has increased by 8 per cent compared to the same period last year.

“There has been significant volume growth in exports of both salmon and herring during October, which has contributed to the growth in value. This is due to increased harvesting and catches. In addition, a weak Norwegian kroner is a major contributor to seafood exports setting a new record for the month of October”, says Tom-Jørgen Gangsø, Director of Market Insight and Market Access with the Norwegian Seafood Council.

“Throughout 2019, the Norwegian kroner has depreciated against the major currencies, and this has helped to increase the export value when this is measured in Norwegian kroner. Measured against the US dollar, across the year the kroner has been 8 per cent weaker compared with the same period last year”, Gangsø continues.

“Measured against the euro and the British pound, the Norwegian krone has been approx. 2.5 per cent weaker”, concludes Tom-Jørgen Gangsø, Director of Market Insight and Market Access with the Norwegian Seafood Council.

Strong volume growth in salmon exports

Norway exported 117,000 tonnes of salmon worth NOK 6.7 billion in October. This is a volume increase of 14 per cent and a value increase of 4 per cent from October last year.

So far this year, Norway has exported 922,000 tonnes of salmon for NOK 59 billion. This is a volume increase of 7 per cent, while the value increased by 6 per cent y-o-y-. The average price for whole fresh salmon in October was NOK 51.89 per kg, compared to NOK 58.35 per kg in October 2018.

Poland and France were the largest salmon markets in October.

“Good production conditions have resulted in higher production than expected. We know that Poland is a large market for seafood processing, and much of the fish that goes there is destined for consumption in other markets. In particular, dollar markets, such as Asia, have accounted for most of the export growth. Some of this can be explained by rising consumer demand. Our analyses show that growth in demand for salmon globally has been highest in China. At the same time, the Norwegian kroner has depreciated more against the dollar than against the euro, which reinforces this effect”, says Frank Isaksen, Chief Analyst at the Norwegian Seafood Council.

"The October numbers confirms the powerful relation between Norwegian and Chinese with regards to seafood trade. So far, we have seen an increase in both export volume and value for Norwegian exports to China. Norwegian salmon is gaining even more momentum in the Chinese market, and is taking larger shares of the market. Meanwhile, it is exciting to see that the effort being put into the pelagic species bears fruit, with increased interest for the Norwegian mackerel", says Victoria Braathen, the Norwegian Seafood Council's Fisheries Envoy to China.

So far this year, Norway has exported 216,000 tonnes of herring for NOK 1.9 billion. This is a 10 per cent increase in volume, and a 5 per cent decline in value from the same period last year.

Nigeria and Egypt were the largest herring markets in October.

“The increase in export volumes is a consequence of doubling the volume of catches, measured against October last year. The increase in exports is mainly for frozen whole herring, and the price has fallen compared with October last year. Price-sensitive markets in Africa, including Nigeria and Egypt, have increased the supply of frozen whole herring”, says Ingrid K. Pettersen, Seafood Analyst at the Norwegian Seafood Council.
