A brief of the aquaculture industry in Norway

Norway has for decades been the strongest and by far the largest salmon producer in the world. Norways geography with extensive coastal areas and fjords represents ideal conditions for offshore/sea-based aquaculture production.

With about 50% of the global production, Norway is the leading producer of atlantic salmon in front of other important salmon producing nations as Chile and UK. The Norwegian aquaculture industry has set important growth rates over the last year and according to a report from EY from 2017 the growth rate of the aquaculture globally is expected to increase further in the years to come. By 2025 the share of the aquaculture industry in global fish production is expected to reach 52% and thus surpassing wild catch fisheries.

Trends and investments in the Norwegian aquaculture Industry
The Aquaculture industry in Norway is already strong and well-established, but still has a strong focus on getting a larger share of the increasing demand of fish and seafood on the world market. The 2017 report from EY Norway is pointing out that Norways current salmon production, though important, is representing below 2% of the global seafood farming all species included, which leaves potential for gaining a considerably larger share of the market.

The expection within the aquaculture in Norway for the years to come is that dominating key trends, such as increased demand for healthy seafood is going to have a positive effect for the aquaculture industry and the Norwegian aquaculture industry is on a constant search and taking initiatives to get their share of the increased demand on the world market. This however requires investment initiatives from the stakeholders and industry players within the aquaculture industry.

As emphasized also by EY in their 2017 report, the aquaculture industry in Norway is covering the entire value chain of the industry with both broodstock, smolt, grow-out and processing facilities and all steps are to be taken into consideration in the development of the industry. The industry in Norway has among other in recent years been focusing on building a more efficient and expanded fish processing industry to keep a larger share of the value-add processing of the fish raw material in Norway.

The Norwegian aquaculture and related processing has a continued focus on strengthening the industries and retaining a strong postition on the global aquaculture market. Focus areas within the aquaculture and related fish processing industry in Norway are among other increased efficiency, improved technology, fish health, biological challenges, digitalization and sustainable solutions. 

The Norwegian government has a strong ambition for the future for the Norwegian fisheries and aquaculuture industris. Norway is to keep its position as one of the leading fish producing nations in the world with a specific production target of 5 mio. tons in 2050.  

To meet the ambitions for development, increased turnover and export shares on one hand and sustainable production on the other hand, several aquaculture/fish farming players in Norway are currently investing in their future development. Investments are among other focused on establishment of several land based fish faming facilities around Norway as many companies and investors are currently investing a lot of ressources in developing land based aquaculture in Norway, who has traditionally been leading within based aquaculture.

This investement trend and development currently defining the Norwegian aquaculture industry can currently offer new opportunities for Danish companies who has a strong tradition for innovative solutions for both land based and sea based aquaculture.
