Norway exported seafood worth NOK 6.6 billion (USD 938.5 million) in November, the same monthly total as November 2013. However, year to date seafood exports have reached NOK 62.5 billion (USD 8.9 billion), an increase of NOK 7 billion (USD 995.4 million), or 13 per cent, compared with the same period last year. This represents a new export record, surpassing the totals for the whole of 2013 by almost NOK 900 million (USD 127.9 million).

"By the start of December, we can state that 2014 has been the best year ever for Norwegian seafood exports. Demand for Norwegian seafood remains very strong and we await with keen interest the totals for the full year", says Christian Chramer, Communications Director for the Norwegian Seafood Council. Year to date seafood exports have been NOK 878 million higher than in 2013.

"Exports of clipfish increased sharply due to the popular tradition of serving bacalao for Christmas. In Portugal eight out of ten consumers surveyed said they were planning to eat traditional clipfish-based christmas dishes. Salmon price increases from November 2013, combined with slightly lower salmon volume reduced the total value of salmon exports somewhat. In the pelagic industry it is worth noting the record large amounts of mackerel exported from Norway. An increase of NOK 189 million compared with November 2013", says Chramer.
