Weekly Seafood Update: Norwegian Farmed Salmon Exports, week 40 2012

Statistics Norway reported an export of 18,773 metric tonnes of fresh/chilled and frozen farmed salmon from Norwegian salmon farmers in week 40, 2012. On a rolling average four week basis volume in tonnes exported were up 13.5% (2,240 tonnes) on the same period last year.

The weighted average price per kilo for the week was NOK 24.60 and was down 1.9% YoY on a rolling average four week basis.

The value of exports for the week was NOK 461.842 million, an increase of 11.4% (NOK 49.259 million) on last year on a rolling average four week basis.

Total tonnes exported continue to increase on last year. Following three weeks in a row with an increase in price on last year on a rolling average four week basis, prices for the week fell for the second week in a row. The total value of exports continued to increase on last year as the increase in volume more than offset the drop in price. The value of exports increased YoY for the 19th week in a row (on a rolling four week basis).
