The fisheries- and aquaculture industry is Norway’s largest export industry after oil & gas and is a key contributor to the country’s economy. Norway administers a sea area that is seven times larger than its mainland. 90 percent of the seafood production is being exported to more than 130 different countries worldwide.

We are continuously involved in a significant proportion of the cases that characterise the Norwegian market.
