Weekly Seafood Update: Norwegian Farmed Salmon Exports, week 2 2013

Statistics Norway reported an export of 16,237 metric tonnes of fresh/chilled and frozen farmed salmon from Norwegian salmon farmers in week 2, 2013. On a rolling average four week basis volume in tonnes exported was up 10.8% (1,429 tonnes) on the same period last year.

The weighted average price per kilo for the week was NOK 33.24 and was up 23.7% YoY on a rolling average four week basis.

The value of exports for the week was NOK 539.773 million, an increase of 34.4% (NOK 118.479 million) on last year on a rolling average four week basis.

Total tonnes exported continue to increase on last year on a rolling four week average basis and increased for the 87th week in a row. On a rolling average four week basis prices for the week increased for the 13th week in a row on last year with the YoY percentage increase for the week being the highest recorded since week 6 in 2011. The total value of exports hence also continued to increase on last year, driven by an increase in both volume and price, and represented the 33rd week in a row with an increase on last year (on a rolling four week basis). The YoY percentage increase in the value of exports (rolling four week average) increased at the fastest pace since week 5 2011. The trend for quite a few weeks now as previously reported is a slower growth rate in volumes exported and an increase in the growth rate in price and the value of exports.
