Seafood exports from Norway have hit a half year record, with salmon once again the top export.
Norway’s seafood exports were worth NOK 53.7bn (£4.5bn), a value rise of 1% against the first six months of last year.

The Norwegian Seafood Council said the record was made despite a strengthening krone and markets still being affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Fisheries Minister Odd Emil Ingebrigtsen said: “This is fantastic news for seafood exports. Not only are we well ahead of a what was a good half year in 2019, but 2021 is the best ever half year for seafood exports so far. Not even a worldwide pandemic has put a stop to more seafood being exported from Norway.”
