Norway exported Norwegian kronak 53.7 billion in seafood in the first six months of this year, up 1 percent, up from NOK 646million a year earlier, according to seafoodmedia7.
Despite the strength of the Norway kronor, the market is still affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. But in terms of value, the first half of this year is the best year for seafood exports. Strong demand for healthy, safe and sustainable Norwegian Seafood is the most important reason Norway has once again set its export record.
Even the global epidemic has failed to stop the growth of demand and exports of Norwegian products. This is not only far ahead of the strong first half of 2019, but also the best half of exports of seafood so far.
In the first half of this year, the export of Norwegian products to South Korea increased significantly, with an increase of NOK 358million to NOK 1.9 billion. Salmon, mackerel and king crab are the most growing species in the market.
