Seafood production in Norway

Norway is uniquely blessed with a long and fertile coastline.  The sea’s abundant resources have laid the foundation for sustaining active coastal communities combining innovation with traditional culture.

The access to some of the worlds most productive marine environment allows our businesses to deliver a wide range of seafood to all four corners of the world. The fisheries and aquaculture industry is Norway’s largest export industry after oil and gas.  Our products from captured and farmed fish are exported to more than 150 countries.

Norway’s seafood industry is also bound to have a tremendous impact in the future. The Norwegian Seefood Federation strives to ensure that the national authorities bear this in mind when determining national priorities.
