** CEO Regin Jacobsen of Faroese fish farmer Bakkafrost

global salmon supply to meet current market demand trend 
    ** CEO predicts global supply growth of 2 percent in 2017 
after a drop of approximately 4 percent in 2016  
    ** CEO says this means market will remain strong 
    ** CEO says it's a challenge that the market does not get 
enough salmon

supply growth if geopolitical issues are resolved, such as 
Chinese and Russian import restrictions from Norway 
    ** CEO also points out Norway's exports were shut out of the 
U.S. salmon market from 2003 to 2012 due to trade restrictions

for demand growth

was a gap, but now there's more common ground for the 
expectations in the market

crowns per kilo in July, but has now dropped to the mid-50s
