Norway exported seafood worth NOK 12 billion (USD 1.3 billion, EUR 1.2 billion) to overseas markets in November, an increase of 28 percent or NOK 2.6 billion (USD 285.3 million, EUR 252.1 million) compared with November 2020. The month’s trade raised the total value for the first 11 months of 2021 to NOK 108.8 billion (USD 11.9 billion, EUR 10.6 million), breaking 2019’s annual record of NOK 107.2 billion (USD 11.8 billion, EUR 10.4 billion).

Norway Minister of Fisheries and Marine Affairs Bjørnar Skjæran said the country’s year-to-date performance had impressed him.

“With high demand for Norwegian seafood, good prices, and the Christmas season ahead of us, I believe that we will have a strong end to this record year 2021,” Skjæran said.
