Last month’s nearly EUR 65.3 million value increase in consignments abroad (NOK 479 million) represent a 9 percent increase on the same month in 2011, according to Norway’s Seafood Council.

“The growth we have seen in seafood exports in November is largely attributable to growth in the value of Norwegian Salmon exports,” Egil Ove Sundheim, the Council’s director of market information, said in a statement. 

November’s salmon exports increased some EUR 64.3 million – 19 percent on November 2011’s – totalling EUR 408.93 million.

Amongst other fish rises, last month’s clip fish exports were EUR 58.46 million. This was an increase of EUR 7.9 compared to the same period last year. Portugal was the biggest market. 

Mackerel export values were also up for November, with Japan and China being the biggest markets. These increased by almost EUR 8.86 million to EUR 59 million.

The Norwegian Seafood Council also says that last month’s fresh cod exports – including fishery-produced fillets – were up in value to EUR 4.9 million. This was an increase of EUR 1.77 million.

November’s fish exports, apart from salmon, were generally down on the same period last year, despite the general EUR 763.3 million upward trend, however.

Herring, and salted fish fell by EUR 1.77 million (2 percent) and EUR 1.36 million, respectively. 

2012’s hitherto total exports of mackerel and clip fish were down EUR 79.6 million (to EUR 395.25 million) and EUR 8 million (EUR 463.41 fall), respectively.
