IN BRIEF - A strong month for trout

NORWAY
Wednesday, February 07, 2024

  • Norway exported 4,584 tonnes of trout worth NOK 439 million in January
  • The value increased by NOK 132 million, or 43 per cent, compared to January last year
  • There is a growth in volume of 49 per cent
  • The USA, Thailand and Ukraine were the biggest markets for trout in January

Ukraine had the most significant increase in value this month, with an increase in export value of NOK 42 million, or 264 per cent, compared to the same month last year.

The export volume to Ukraine ended at 682 tonnes, which is 177 per cent higher than the same month last year.

Some big swings

"Historically speaking, both trout production and exports have had significant fluctuations. There was a decrease in 2023, but it is now back at the 2022 level measured in volume. However, there has been a sharp turn in the product mix for trout. Fresh whole trout has increased its dominance compared to the other product types", says Paul T. Aandahl, Seafood Analyst with the Norwegian Seafood Council.

Measured in terms of value, fresh whole trout accounted for 71 per cent of exports in January, compared to 57 per cent in the same month last year.

Price increase of 15 per cent

The average export price for fresh whole salmon in January was NOK 107.09 per kg. That is 15 per cent higher than in the same month last year.

FRANCE
Wednesday, February 07, 2024

A French court ruled on 18 January to institute an emergency closure of the Bay of Biscay to commercial fishing. 

The emergency closure of the fishing grounds from 22 January to 20 February to French vessels, as well as those fishing under flags of other E.U. member state, aims to protect cetaceans – a group of aquatic mammals comprising whales, dolphins, and porpoises. The ban extends to all vessels over 8 meters in length and applies to pelagic trawls and demersal pair trawls, as well as vessels operating trammel and set-nets and purse-seine gear.

IN BRIEF - A large increase in coldwater prawn volume

NORWAY
Tuesday, February 06, 2024

  • In January, Norway exported 1,693 tonnes of coldwater prawn (pandalus borelis) to a value of NOK 89 million
  • The value was unchanged from the same month last year
  • There is a growth in volume of 48 per cent
  • Sweden, Iceland and Denmark were the biggest markets for prawns in January

Although the volume has increased by 48 per cent, the value is unchanged.

"This is due to increased volumes at lower prices and lower volumes of more expensive products. In addition, there has been substantial growth in the export of frozen industrial prawns to Iceland. At the same time, the price has more than halved", says Marte Sofie Danielsen, Manager for Shellfish with the Norwegian Seafood Council.

Decrease for frozen peeled prawn

Iceland had the most significant increase in value in January, with 688 tonnes, worth NOK 14 million, compared to nothing last year.

At the same time, there has been a volume and value decrease of 34 per cent for frozen peeled prawns. The volume has decreased by 266 tonnes, while the price has decreased by 3 per cent, measured in Norwegian kroner, and 9 per cent in euros.

Measured in total value, Sweden was the largest market for shrimp in January, with 239 tonnes worth NOK 21 million.


IN BRIEF - A big fall in snow crab exports

NORWAY
Tuesday, February 06, 2024

  • In January, Norway exported 123 tonnes of snow crab to a value of NOK 10 million
  • Compared to January last year, the value fell by NOK 24 million, or 70 per cent
  • The volume fell by 58 per cent
  • Denmark and Canada were the biggest markets for snow crab in January

"The main reason for the large drop in volume is that there has been less left in stock from the previous year. That was not the case in January last year when there was a lot in stock from 2022. There has been good snow crab fishing in January, so export volumes are expected to pick up again from February", says Marte Sofie Danielsen, Manager for Shellfish with the Norwegian Seafood Council.

Notable increase in value to Denmark

In January, the snow crab mainly went to the transit market in Denmark, which had the most significant increase in value with an increase of NOK 9 million compared to the same month last year. The export volume to Denmark ended at 111 tonnes.

"In January, the price per kilo for frozen snow crab was NOK 83 per kg, the lowest in a January month since 2015, which was the first year we started exporting snow crab. Compared to January last year, the decrease is 29 per cent", explains Danielsen.


IN BRIEF - Good start to the year for king crab

NORWAY
Tuesday, February 06, 2024

  • Norway exported 202 tonnes of king crab worth NOK 98 million in January
  • The value increased by NOK 18 million, or 22 per cent, compared to January last year

  • The USA, Vietnam and Hong Kong SAR were the biggest markets for king crab in January

Despite a 60 per cent reduction in the king crab quota, the export value in January has increased by 22 per cent compared to the same month last year.

Strong rise in frozen king crab exports

"The increase in value is due to the rise in the export volume of frozen king crab, which comes from the fact that there has been king crab left in stock from last year. In addition, there has been an increase in the price of live king crab despite a volume decrease of 20 per cent", says Marte Sofie Danielsen, Manager for Shellfish with the Norwegian Seafood Council.

The price of live king crab increased by NOK 45 per kg, to NOK 520 per kg, compared to January last year.

King Crab sees the strongest growth in the USA
